Our gardens and lawns will get a nice soaking in the next 24 hours. Rain is likely the rest of the night on and off through tomorrow. We could pick up anywhere from a .50” to a 3/4” of rain. Some isolated areas could see even higher amounts. This will certainly help out the deficit we have for the month and for the year. It will be mild and muggy with lows in the mid to upper 50s.
It looks to be a showery Wednesday. Scattered showers early then a chance for showers and possibly thunderstorms in the afternoon. Highs with the upper low so close by should stay in the mid to upper 60s to near 70.
WARMER END TO THE WEEK
Our rain chances decrease for Thursday and Friday as the upper low pulls away. Sunshine should peek out Thursday, mixing with clouds on and off through the day. This will help to boost temps into the low 70s. There is still a chance for showers but there will be more dry hours than wet. Friday a front approaches and may trigger a few showers and possibly a thunderstorm late in the day towards evening. Ahead of the system, temperatures are expected to jump into the upper 70s to maybe near 80°.
Another front comes in Saturday. This one will bring another round of showers and much cooler air. We should still get into the low 70s to start the weekend but by Sunday cooler air will filter in as the front pushes out of the area. Good news is right now it looks like Mother’s Day will be mainly dry and as we go through the day; the clouds will decrease allowing for more sunshine. It will be breezy and cooler with highs in the mid 60s. Any threat for rain would be isolated and early in the morning in the east as the system exits.
COOL COUPLE OF DAYS
Early next week we’ll enjoy plenty of sunshine as a sprawling high pressure system dominates the area. It will be cooler with lows in the low 40s and highs a bit below average in the low to mid 60s.
Yeah for the rain!
