PM Update: Rain incoming, will last through night

By Ian Livingston

Precipitation to depart Wed., still rather cloudy

After a rainy morning (mostly pre-sunrise), we've seen a damp and drizzly one around here, and more wet weather is moving in. A large swath of rain spreading over the area from southwest to northeast will last through the night. In an already wet month, some decent additional rain totals of 0.50" to 1.00" are possible. With all the clouds and precipitation, highs today only ranged from the mid-50s to near 60, which is back a bit below normal for this time of year.

Through Tonight: Showers. Near 50. The next batch of consistent rain arrives from southwest to northeast during the rest of the afternoon into evening. Unfortunately, it's looking quite wet for the High Heel Race at 9 p.m. Embedded moderate to heavy showers are likely within the main swath of lighter activity. The heaviest rain should occur overnight and before sunrise. Lows drop to the upper 40s and low 50s.

Tomorrow (Wednesday): Chance of showers. Mid-60s. Any consistent rain left around in the morning should wane early. However, a chance of a few showers will likely persist through afternoon. Some breaks in the clouds are also possible late, but it still looks like a mostly cloudy day. Highs rise toward the mid-60s.

Drat! Traffic looks like I'll never make it home, and I'm sure to get soaked during soccer tonight. It's definatley useful that I'm off tomorrow.

Really wet now!
