Cloudy Tuesday with a few showers returning by Wednesday


Heavy rain expected Thursday with a cold front...

THIS EVENING: Partly Cloudy, Pleasant. Temperatures Dropping Into the 70s.

OVERNIGHT: Increasing Clouds. Lo 58. Winds: Light.

TUESDAY: Mostly Cloudy. Hi 75. Winds: SE 5-10 mph.

Another nice late September day! We enjoyed sunshine and seasonable temperatures in the upper 70s. Our western counties did see more cloud cover, and that will be more of a theme as we head over the next few days. As our winds pick up out of the southeast, clouds will be on the increase everywhere tonight and especially Tuesday. There can be some patchy drizzle that develops in spots, but most will stay dry. Temperatures will struggle to climb above the lower 70s thanks to all the clouds.

The next front will take its time getting here, with no showers expected until Wednesday morning the earliest. A better chance for showers will come late Wednesday, with the steadiest rain expected sometime Thursday. The exact timing of the front is still in question, but regardless…the slow speed and increase in tropical moisture of it can result in some heavy rain Wednesday night-Thursday afternoon. It’s still too early for specifics, but a couple inches of rain are possible where training of heavier rain bands or storms occurs. Right now, the severe threat appears low, but we may have to watch for a low-end damaging wind threat as the actual front crosses.

Behind the front, cool air will settle in for the end of the week. Highs look to be locked into the lower 70s with overnight lows in the 50s. A secondary front could push through next weekend, possibly bringing some light showers late Saturday and a reinforcing shot of cool air and breezy conditions for Sunday.
