TURNING UNSETTLED: Wednesday morning is a dry start with some building clouds. There are some patchy areas of fog are possible. Otherwise, the clouds quickly thicken through the mid to late morning hours as our next system slowly approaches. Temperatures begin in the 40s to lower 50s. Temperatures are still on the milder side, with readings in the lower to middle 70s for the afternoon. A few isolated afternoon showers are likely, and the coverage increases through the evening hours. The breezes pick up too. Some heavy pockets of rain are likely through the night, with overnight low temperatures in the middle 50s to near 60 degrees.
DRENCHING DAYS: Heavy rain continues through Thursday and Friday, courtesy of this next system. It detaches from the main steering winds of the jet stream, so it’s here to stay for a few days. Expect pockets of heavy rain and breezy conditions on Thursday and Friday. Rainfall amounts could reach 1 to 2 inches, even more in some spots. This puts the region at risk for areas of flooding and flash flooding. This threat is greatest for poor drainage roadways and smaller creeks/streams. There are plenty of clouds, with readings in the 60s.
SLOW DRYING: The weekend is slow to bring improvements as the system gradually lifts out of the area. Mostly cloudy skies are expected for Saturday, but still anticipate a few showers. Highs are in the upper 60s to near 70. Sunday is much drier with some breaks of sun, but a couple showers can’t be entirely excluded. Highs are in the lower to middle 70s. Monday brings a mixture of sunshine and clouds, with highs in the lower to middle 70s. Tuesday is a similar day, though it is a touch cooler.
Have a great Wednesday!
