PM Update: This Raw and Rainy Story Continues
More chilly rain Wednesday before sunny repreive
After morning rains -- mainly from I-95 and to the east -- today has been dominated by clouds, mist and some showers. Highs around 50 have been capped by the clouds and dampness helping frame this raw mid-April day. We'll stay locked in with this dreariness for about another 24-36 hours before returning to springtime's glory later in the week.
Tonight: Scattered appreciable rain becomes more likely again overnight as a surface low forms southeast of the area. Best chances look to be over eastern portions of the area. Rainfall totals overnight should be around .1"-.25" where showers fall, with some higher totals possible. Mid 40s should do it for lows and winds should increase a bit in response to the forming surface low.
Tomorrow (Wednesday): More periods of rain are on tap before we lose the pesky upper level low Jason Samenow discussed earlier. Key times for rain look to be afternoon into evening, but showers are possible throughout the day. Additional totals of .5"+ are possible, bringing overall event totals to 1-2" for portions of the area. Highs will rise to the upper 40s or near 50. Some showers tomorrow may contain gusty winds.

Florida Tornadoes: Another aspect of the sprawling upper low affecting the eastern part of the nation has been big storms in Florida. Tornadoes were spotted this morning near Tampa before a damaging squall line ripped through the state.
