Active pattern persists

Mild temperatures with rain chances
Posted at 3:10 PM, Mar 10, 2020

As promised, the rain showers arrived this morning and continue to work through the state. We are seeing the clearing line with the cold front, and on the other side is cloud coverage, but dry weather. Though the front is sliding through, many temperatures remain mild in the upper 50s and low 60s. Wind is either out of the southwest ahead of the front or has shifted northwest behind.

The last of the rain showers will slide east this afternoon and evening. Even with the frontal passage, clouds hang around as dirty high pressure will not be enough to clear us. Temperatures don’t cool much either. Rainfall so far today has totaled between a trace and a half inch for most locations. Expect another round of showers Wednesday evening as the next feature arrives. Chances will be lower, but there is still the potential for rain drops through the day. Thursday brings another “rain likely” day with widespread showers and a few thunderstorms expected. Even with that system passing us, we’re still not letting up the activity anytime soon. In fact, rain showers and storms will continue into the weekend. We may get a small break Sunday before another few waves move in for next week.
