PM Update: Fall Arrives with Warmth and Humidity
Clouds stick around, a few showers possible through Wed.
Plentiful clouds today have yet to lead to much in the way of rain. We have seen just a few light passing showers, mainly over western and northwestern suburbs. Considering the clouds, it's still a rather warm one, with highs rising near and above 80 in many places. Dew points are also on the rise -- it has become increasingly humid over the last 24 hours. Though fall officially arrives at 5:18 p.m., it won't feel too fall-like for a few days.
Through Tonight: It's a mostly cloudy, mild, and somewhat muggy evening ahead featuring a risk of a passing shower. Though we stick with a chance of isolated to scattered showers through the night, many spots probably stay dry and those that get rain won't get much. Skies stay mostly cloudy overnight as lows range from the mid-60s to near 70.
Tomorrow (Wednesday): More mostly cloudy skies are scheduled for Wednesday. We should also see a few hit-or-miss showers, maybe a little more widespread than today. Highs look to rise to near 80 and into the low 80s.
Southeast Deluge:Following the recent end to a 2-year drought, major rains -- nearly a foot yesterday alone in spots -- have caused severe flooding across parts of Georgia, including the Atlanta metro area and surrounds. At least eight people have been killed thus far, infrastructure has been flooded and damaged, thousands are without power, and numerous homes and businesses have been destroyed. In a sea of bad news, there is some good: lakes that were still well-below normal levels have been filling rapidly. See a photo gallery from CNN.
