Switching the Sunscreen Out For the Umbrella

Goooood morning, WABBLES! Welcome to the best Tuesday you have seen in awhile. Today will be much like yesterday except that it will be even warmer. Sadly though, conditions will quickly change and many will find themselves switching the sunscreen out for the umbrella.

Summer-like Conditions Today

A high pressure out east will funnel warm air up from the south into our region today and inhibit any clouds from forming for the most part. With this being said, we can expect mostly sunny skies with a high in the mid 80’s and light winds around 10mph.

Overnight, conditions begin to alter as clouds begin to roll in ahead of our next weather-making system. A few light showers will be possible as the drops to the low 60s.

Welcoming in the Rain

Wednesday morning will be pretty dreary for the vast majority of us. Light to moderate pesky showers could be present as a low-pressure system draws nearer. Into the afternoon, mostly cloudy skies dominate.

Expect a high once more in the low 80s. It appears we will stay dry most of the overnight hours. However, scattered light to moderate showers will be possible with the passing of a cold front and a low in the mid to 60s.

Washout on Thursday

Thursday looks to be our poorest day of the week weather wise with most of it being a complete washout. Widespread heavy showers can be expected for most of the afternoon and evening with embedded thunderstorms. The cold front will cool temperatures to the mid 70s on Thursday.

Showers finally move out by the late evening Thursday. All in all, out of this system in total we can expect about an inch and half or less of accumulation. Flash flooding will be the greatest threat on Thursday.
