Tuesday Morning: Rainy with Dropping Temperatures

Weather

StormTracker Forecast...We’ve hit our high temperature of 72°F for the day, but that occurred early this morning. Thanks to a passing cold front, temperatures will only go down from here. By the afternoon, most of the area will be sitting in the 40s and 50s, but with a gusty wind out of the north, it will feel much cooler. You’ll want to pack a warm jacket and your rain gear today. You can expect passing showers off and on throughout the day before another round of showers moves in tonight. Rainfall amounts may be around 0.50″ to 1.50″ in heavier showers.

The rain should end by Wednesday morning, but it will be chilly and breezy. Wake-up temperatures will be in the 30s and 40s. Wednesday will feature sun and clouds with highs only in the mid-50s.

We won’t stay dry very long as a passing disturbance will create some showers on Thursday and Friday. Temperatures will still be cool in the 50s and 60s.

This weekend will be pleasant with sun and clouds and temperatures in the 60s and 70s. Good weekend for holiday festivities and shopping!

Another system is expected to move in on Monday. It’s too early to talk specifics, but it will likely knock temperatures back down into the 50s during the day and 30s at night and in the morning.
