Unsettled weather begins today

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

WET FEW DAYS:  The much advertised coastal low is with us over the next couple of days.  Don’t expect to see the sun for a few days as clouds stay with us through the end of the week and into much of the weekend.

3 Day Planner

Expect periods of rain today lasting a few hours with some breaks in-between.  It will be cool, damp, and raw feeling even when the rain stops.  Highs today hold in the middle to upper 50s with a cool northerly breeze.  Scattered showers linger into tonight and even Friday.   Highs Friday should touch the low 60s.  Many spots should see a good soaking of rain, from 0.5”-1.5” possible in spots.

Rain Estimates

A rough estimate of rainfall potential through Saturday AM.

WEEKEND:  The coastal low will keep the clouds for Saturday, but rain chances should break down a bit.  We’ll keep some drizzle and a few showers for Saturday with highs in the middle 60s.  Sunday, we should see the sun return as the coastal low breaks apart and shifts south while a bit of high pressure from the north tries to wedge into the state.  We’re in the upper 60s again.

NEXT WEEK:  Skies continue to clear a bit Monday into Tuesday as we await our next storm system for Wednesday.  We look to stay dry with sunshine returning for early week and highs near 70°.  Wednesday starts dry but showers may arrive later in the day as the next system moves into the region.

Stay dry and make it a great Thursday!
