Beautiful Weekend, More Rain Coming

We have sunny skies to start out the weekend with warming temperatures! Highs today will reach the 50s. More clouds will be moving in Sunday ahead of our next storm system, but we should stay dry through sunset. Highs will warm into the 60s! Get outside and enjoy!

Rain moves in Sunday night and Monday. Periods of heavy rain are possible Monday through Wednesday with flooding very possible. Some strong storms may be possible as well, but we are still working out those details.

Storm total rain amounts look to be 4 to 6 inches across the area. Some model data is pointing to locally higher amounts, which would lead to much more flooding.

Stay tuned, we will have the latest on this developing storm system throughout the weekend. Have a great Saturday!

Cloudy & Cooler Today, Snow Thursday?

A strong cold front moved through last night dropping the temps sharply behind it. Scattered showers will be ending this morning but the clouds will likely hold tough for most of us today. A few lucky areas may see some peeks of sunshine this afternoon. Highs will top out in the upper 40s to lower 50s this afternoon.

Another fast moving system starts to affect the area late night and into Thursday. Models have been trending cooler with the start of this system, and we may have some wintry precip to deal with Thursday morning. Most models are showing temps in the lower to middle 30s with a wintry mix moving in. Some light snow accumulation will be possible, mainly on grassy and elevated areas Thursday morning. Snow is always a tough forecast…so know this all could stay rain!

Much like the event a few weeks ago…some locations may be “lucky” (or unlucky depending on your view!) and get a quick heavy burst of snow. We will have more on this system as we go into this afternoon and tonight. Below are the EURO and NAM model maps for what they think on snow totals…

EURO MODEL: Total Accumulated Snowfall – Valid Friday Feb 21 00Z
NAM MODEL: Total Accumulated Snowfall – Valid Friday Feb 21 00Z

This system moves out of the area Thursday afternoon and we clear out Thursday night and Friday. Sunshine will be nice Friday, but the temperatures will be cold! Highs will only be in the 40s Friday with lows dropping well into the 20s Friday night into Saturday morning!

Showers may return as early as Sunday, unfortunately. Right now the rain does not look overly heavy, but keep checking back!

Have a great Wednesday!


Sunshine Returns!

We have sunny skies for Valentine’s Day! We will stay dry for several days including this weekend!

It will remain cold today with highs only in the low 40s. Wind chill readings stay in the 30s all day!

Some clouds move in this weekend but no rain worries! Highs warm back into the 50s.

A chance of showers arrives Monday night with a good chance of showers for Tuesday. The good news is the heaviest rain MAY stay just south of us…keep checking back.

This is the GFS and the Euro models for total rain through next Thursday.

Have a great Friday and a great weekend!

2 Dry Days, Then Rain, Rain, Rain

It has been a terribly wet start to 2020 so far, with that trend continuing for the next few weeks. A passing disturbance this morning is moving out and we will be left with partly cloudy skies today with warmer highs in the 50s.

Tonight looks clear and cool with lows 30-35 degrees.

Enjoy Sunday! Clouds increase throughout the day with breezy conditions. Highs will be great-in the mid 60s.

Rain moves back in Sunday night into Monday. Rain could be heavy at times on Monday making any flooding conditions worse.

Rain continues Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Heavy rainfall amounts will continue to make flooding worse. We continue to watch for the threat for more strong storms Wednesday night into Thursday. The European model has temps in the low 70s with strong storms during this time frame…

Meanwhile, the GFS has temps in the 50s with rain.

We will continue to work through the details on this midweek system! Keep checking back!

Rain totals look to be 3-6 inches next week.

We finally dry out Friday with sunshine returning.

Have a great Saturday!
