Goodbye warmth, hello fall coolness. The system bringing rain to us today and tonight has brought in the well-advertised change of pattern. It is here to stay for a bit.
Rain continues through tonight. It will be heavy at times, but due to the antecedent dry conditions we do not anticipate any significant issues. Flash flood values are high and rivers and streams are low. This is just the rain that most of the area needed. Rainfall TOTALS by Wednesday morning will range from 0.50-1.5” with up to 2” possible inside the heaviest and most persistent rain. Lows tonight range in the upper 40s to around 50. Most of the rain moves out of the area by daybreak, but there could be a few isolated showers lingering through about 8am. If this happens the best chance will be east. Sun and clouds return for the afternoon Wednesday. It will be breezy with gusty SW winds reaching 20-25mph at times.
Thursday brings sun and clouds with highs in the low 60s and lows in the 40s.
Friday some more scattered showers are expected. The chance of rain is 40% but increases a bit to around 60% east. Highs drop into the 50s with lows into Saturday morning in the 30s to low 40s.
Saturday could also see a few scattered rain showers. Highs will be in the mid 50s with lows in the 30s by Sunday morning. Partly sunny conditions are on tap for next Sunday. Highs remain in the mid 50s. Some more showers are possible Monday with highs in the 50s.
Next Tuesday's rain chances appear a bit higher around 60% with highs near 60.
