Clouds will increase along with the temperature today. Highs will rise into the 70’s this afternoon after seeing a partly sunny day with southeasterly winds warming us up and giving us more moisture out ahead of a cold front to pass overnight into Thursday. Anticipate cloudy skies during the late afternoon and evening. Showers could start as early as the afternoon, but will likely during the evening and overnight. Heavy rains come after midnight into Thursday morning.
Expect substantial rainfall for Thursday. A Flood Watch is in effect late Wednesday night through Thursday. We expect to see 1 to 2 inches of rainfall with this system. Some areas may see up to 3 inches. Rains may lead to creek and river flooding, along with areas that tend to flood. Never cross floodwaters. Turn around, don’t drown!
Thursday’s showers will spill over into Friday. Temperatures will go from the upper 60’s Thursday into the lower 60’s Friday. Temperatures will be quick to rebound with sunnier skies for Saturday. We see a mix of clouds Sunday with a shower late. Partly sunny skies with slightly cooler temperatures Monday with morning showers. Sun Tuesday.
