PM Update: Clouds for now, rain comes later
Wet and chilly on Thursday
Morning sun has given way to increasing and lowering clouds this afternoon as the first effects of tomorrow's rain producer are felt across the area. Highs have reached the low-and-mid 50s, with a light south wind making up for lack of afternoon sun by transporting in slightly warmer air. Low pressure beginning to gather to our south will send rain this way late tonight, but the evening looks to go off without a hitch.
Through Tonight: We'll see veiled sun and some breaks in the clouds through sunset - overall, turning cloudier with temperatures falling through the 50s and into the 40s. Some showers should start breaking out around midnight, but the bulk of the rain comes in the pre-dawn hours through the morning. Lows range from near 40 to the mid-40s.
Tomorrow (Thursday): There's a pretty high risk for periods of moderate rain during the commute and then lasting 'til around early afternoon. The second half of the day features either scattered showers (especially west) or a second round of moisture riding north (especially east). Plenty of clouds and rain hold temperatures back, with highs in the upper 40s and lower 50s.
Liftoff? Space Shuttle Discovery is scheduled to take its final flight to space tomorrow, if the weather (and electrical issues) cooperate. Forecasters at NASA now say there is an 80 percent chance weather will nix the launch. See Cape Caneveral, Fl. weather.
