Good Morning Folks! A tenth of an inch on average fell across the region yesterday and today we expect much more, with the next several days producing over an inch of rain for the region. We expect today through Saturday to be fairly wet, while Sunday into early next week slowly brings takes away the constant barrage of showers and storms. Temps will continue to remain just around or below normal levels through Saturday and starting Sunday we will find a gradual return to normal then slightly above normal by early next week.
Currently there is a rather large band of showers and thunderstorms off to our west, which will begin to slide into the region as we speak and continue to do so for the next few hours. With this in mind, we expect a quarter of an inch or more to fall across the region before midday and possibly another tenth – quarter of an inch will fall this afternoon. The afternoon round will develop on its own accord as SW flow continues across the region and coupled with high moisture levels, some showers could produce heavy downpours. Temps will not rise too high as they push into the mid 60’s – upper 70’s depending upon elevation, which is slightly cooler than previously discussed. Moving into the overnight hours another round of showers seems possible based on the models, so we kept with isolated showers and temps dipping into the upper 50’s – mid 60’s.
