Forecast Discussion

Even with the extra cloud cover, we’re looking at a brief lull in the rainfall as we wait for the next storm system to arrive. It won’t be long before that happens though, as a low pressure center follows a stalled boundary to our south tonight. Scattered showers will make it soggy heading into Wednesday morning.

Continued chances for showers will be in the forecast thanks to yet another low pressure arriving late Wednesday. We can’t completely rule out some rainfall during the day, but the bulk of the precipitation should occur more toward the evening and overnight hours. All the while, temperatures will mostly be on the mild side, as we warm up into the 50’s and eventually approach the 60’s before the week wraps up. An area of high pressure will briefly budge that lingering stalled boundary more to the south for Thursday and Friday, ending rain chances and giving us a little bit of sunshine before 2021 ends.

As we ring in the new year and end our celebrations, Mother Nature will be bringing quite a strong storm system across the country to kick off 2022. While the exact track of this storm system is still a bit in question and could play a large role in exactly what we see over the weekend, New Year’s Day is looking like quite the soaker. Steady rain is expected and could make a decent dent in our recent dry spell, with a half to three quarters of an inch easily achievable. Scattered showers continue for a bit on Sunday, with much colder air arriving as the weekend wraps up. If this colder air gets here before the precipitation ends, we could see a brief bit of snowfall, but right now it doesn’t look like it would be anything to write home about. Skies will clear out with chilly highs in the 30’s for next Monday.

Have a great Tuesday everyone!
