Rain showers will continue through the day as a warm front lifts north. You’ll certainly feel the effects as we rise into the 60s for afternoon highs, despite the rain and cloud coverage. Winds will be strong today as the fronts pass. Expect a stout southerly wind gusting to 40 mph at times. As of now, it’s just scattered rain, but heavier showers and storms will be present through the afternoon.

The second feature of the low is the first cold front. That will arrive late day and before it arrives, showers will get heavier. Storms will accompany them and expect heavy rain and strong wind gusts. Storms are expected to remain typical, so no severe weather. Still, don’t be surprised if a random severe thunderstorm warning is issued due to wind. We will break the all-time wettest year record today and then we have all of December to get through to keep padding stats. More sun is expected and needed tomorrow. Temperatures get an uptick tomorrow, despite the cold front later today. The next feature of the low is what will bring a major change. Temperatures will plummet after an arctic cold front early next week. So prepare for winter to move back in and hang around through next week.
