WET AND STORMY MONDAY: Say goodbye to the stretch of warm, summer air. Fall like air arrives through the day today, with falling temperatures through the daylight hours. Rain is likely to begin in the western counties around 8/9 A.M. quickly moving east through midday. Expect a few hours of rain, heavy at times. It’s breezy too for a good chunk of the day, first from the south and then from the west at 10-15mph with higher gusts. Thunderstorms today along the line of storms may contain damaging winds and localized flooding, with a very tiny threat for a tornado. Once the main line moves through, any severe weather ends. Best chances for storms today are from 9AM -3PM. Stay alert for any severe weather watches or warnings.
The skies clear quickly as the storms clear out by afternoon. Expect temperatures to drop off into the 60s by midday and 50s by early evening. Tonight, we’re mainly clear and much cooler with lows in the middle 40s!
FALL AIR: High pressure settles in for Tuesday and Wednesday. Expect sunshine Tuesday with highs in the upper 60s, seasonal for this time of the year. Wednesday, we’re sunny to start with clouds streaming in from the south later in the day. Highs hold in the upper 60s.
LOTS OF UNCERTAINTY: All the models want to develop a low pressure along the coast for late week into the weekend. The problem is timing, strength, and location. A few put rain on us for days with others clipping us with just clouds and a few drops. For now, keep the thought of a generally cloudy end of the week and weekend. The uncertainly comes with rain chances from late Wednesday through Sunday. Right now, we’re putting a shot at rain in on Thursday. Of course any rainy day would likely be cooler. Expect temperatures in the 60s for the latter half of the week. With additional model runs, we hope to have a clearer picture for you into the days ahead. Please bear with us for now.
Have a great Monday!
