FORECAST IN DETAIL
Ready yourself for a good dousing of rain during the next few days as several areas of low pressure track through the region along a stalled out frontal boundary. There will be some dry breaks in between low pressure waves but general northeast flow will keep conditions rather drizzly. After all is said and done, most areas will see at least an inch of rain.
Today (Sunday): We'll finally see some appreciable rain as low pressure approaches from the southwest. Skies undoubtedly will remain overcast throughout the day holding high temperatures in the lower 60s. Winds will blow lightly out of the northeast at less than 10 mph. Confidence: Medium-High
Tonight: Not much will change as we move into the night. Light to moderate rain showers will continue to fall across the area - with some locally heavy rainfall possible. Overnight lows won't drop that much and will range from the low-to-mid 50s. Rainfall totals by morning (including today) should be about a half an inch or more on average, with an inch possible in some areas, especially just to our north. Winds will be from the east at around 10 mph.
Keep reading for the forecast through your mid-week...
Tomorrow (Monday): It will continue to be damp. Another batch of moderate rain should pass through in the a.m. and mid-day hours with lighter showers in its wake lasting through the evening. Temperatures will reach the low 60s, perhaps a degree or two warmer than Sunday's highs. Winds will be from the north at around 10 mph. Confidence: Medium-High
Tomorrow Night: The steadiest of the rain should be on its way out by tomorrow night. Still, we won't see much of a drying as I expect showers to continue to move through. Overnight lows will bottom out in the lower 50s. Some fog is possible towards dawn if light winds from the northeast go calm for a period overnight. Confidence: Medium-High
Tuesday may be our "driest" day of this forecast period though a 50% chance for rain showers stays in the forecast. The majority of any rain would be in the morning-to-noon hours after which a dry spell should last into the overnight. We'll stay cloudy, with highs in the mid-60s and overnight lows in the mid-to-upper 50s. Confidence: Medium
Wednesday brings another chance for some moderate rain to move through. We could see a few peeks of sun during the morning as a weak high pressure tries unsuccessfully to build in. Then another low likely moves in from the southwest bringing more showers and t'storms for the afternoon and evening. Highs will be warmer though, likely in the low 70s. Confidence: Medium
