I think at this point, everyone is tired of the rain. Cloudy skies, showers, storms, flooding, and cooler air has been a norm for the last few days. We only have a small window to get through and then we’re basking in the sun for a few days again. Despite cloud coverage, temperatures are up due to a passing warm front. We’ve reached the upper 70s or low 80s and some areas continue to warm. Rain showers are in a small break pattern. We have a few around, but the widespread stuff is out for the time being.
We’re tracking a lull in the pattern with mostly light and isolated showers this afternoon. More rain and thunderstorms are expected later this evening. The incoming cold front will slide instability and the warmer air will help fire off scattered thunderstorms. Heavy rainfall and the potential for damaging wind will be the main threats. Thunderstorms will diminish overnight, but rain showers will continue as the second cold front dives further south. This front will deliver the much needed dry air, as it works through Wednesday. Showers will taper off and move out in the late morning, and early afternoon. After that, the clouds will decrease, and temperatures will cool as the Canadian air mass arrives.
