…A FLOOD WATCH is in effect for tonight through Thursday morning.  Steady rain, heavy at times, will result in flooding of poor drainage areas as well as some of the creeks and streams…


WETTEST DAYS:  We’re into the heart of the wet weather today and tomorrow, as a blocked system spirals plenty of moisture into the state in two waves.  Today, expect showers during the day, with clouds and a foggy mist staying in place along with a cool breeze.  Highs struggle to do low 50s with clouds hanging tight.  Fog will stick in place overnight.


A second wave arrives Wednesday.  Rain is here during the morning and midday, with batches of heavy showers arriving especially in the afternoon and evening, tapering overnight.  We do budge temps closer to 60°, but it takes all day and doesn’t happen until close to midnight.  It’s still cool, damp, and breezy.


Models suggest 2-4″ of rain possible through Wednesday night.

The rain will total up to 3-4” with higher amounts in spots before we close out on Thursday morning.  Expect localized flooding in poor drainage areas, typical problem spots, some creeks and streams, and anywhere we set up a heavy, longer lasting band.

BREAK:  The energy spirals out for Thursday, leaving a small chance for some showers or a storm.  Highs will finally budge and climb to the low 70s.  Friday, we should see a break, but it remains partly to mostly cloudy.  Highs are in the middle 60s.

WEEKEND:  A weak wave brings a shot at showers, along with reinforcing clouds for Saturday.  Highs hit the middle 60s.  We dry again for Sunday with highs in the low 60s and partly to cloudy skies.  We look to stay active into next week.  More to come.

Make it a terrific and dry Tuesday!
