Stop us if you’ve heard this before. We are tracking more rain. The weather story over the the next two days will feature a double threat – a low moving up the eastern seaboard and a cold front marching out of the Midwest. The southern system has been sending showers our way overnight. Showery activity this morning will turn into a soaking rain by the afternoon. Widespread rain continues into Friday with one to two inches of rain possible.

The second part of our story, the cold front, will blow through tomorrow. Temperatures will drop from near 50° today to the lower 40s for highs, and it will keep getting colder tomorrow evening. Lingering showers could briefly mix with, or change over to, snow on the tail end of things. Little to no accumulation is expected, but flakes will more than likely fly. Only seems appropriate for the early hours of winter. (The Winter Solstice is at 5:23 PM Friday.)
