PM Update: Rain, and Lots of It, Through Friday
Flooding a concern through Friday; Weekend looks fine
What a difference a day (and a strong cold front) makes. Yesterday we were dealing with summerlike humidity and thunderstorms; today we see chilly temperatures only rising to the low 60s as a winterlike storm system takes shape. Rain, mostly light to occasionally moderate, has arrived in parts of the area and will continue off and on through the evening before more in the way of solid activity arrives overnight.
Through Tonight: After off-and-on, light-to-moderate rain through evening, steadier and sometimes heavier rain will fall overnight as a storm gets organized to our south and heads this way. Some thunder is possible. Lows will be fairly uniform, mostly in the mid-to-upper 50s. By morning, much of the area should have seen at least .50-1.00" of rain, with a good chance that some places get more.
Tomorrow (Friday): The morning commute could be an ugly one as a coastal low provides more in the way of rain, sometimes moderate or heavy, through the morning and into the day. Highs should reach the low-to-mid 60s. By late in the day, rain should begin to wind down, but showers will still be possible through evening. Up to another inch or so of rain could fall on Friday, bringing some two-day totals up to between 2" and 3".

1 Year Ago: While yesterday's storminess was pretty intense for this area, it was minor compared to what we saw a year ago today. An historic severe weather outbreak was underway at this time, causing nearly 100 individual damage reports, as well as leaving hundreds of thousands in the dark across the area. Though the first round, classified as a derecho, was the most intense area-wide, several waves of storms (including tornadic ones) swept through, leaving few places completely untouched.
