Showers and storms will be possible this afternoon and evening as a cold front pushes through our area. We look to see a good quarter of an inch of rain at least over the next few days. In total, we should see a good inch or so before it is all said and done. A few isolated severe storms will be possible. Strong gusty winds are the main threat.
The cold front along with lingering clouds will knock our temperatures down into the 80’s for the rest of the week and into the weekend after Tuesday. Tuesday, expect partly sunny skies to start with highs getting, once again, into the 90’s. Temperatures will be closer to the average for this time of the year. These near average temperatures will continue for the rest of the workweek and into the weekend.
The rains over the next coming days will not come with a complete washout, but instead will be a good soaking rain. We may see some hefty showers with some storms, but they look to be on and off throughout the coming days. Stay tuned to WDVM 25 for the latest weather information.
Things look to become closer to the sunny side as we head into the latter half of the weekend into early next week.
