An extensive area of rain showers has moved overhead making for a gloomy Tuesday. Rain showers have been widespread and light with a few rounds of moderate mixed in. Despite the abundant cloud coverage, we have warmed into the middle and upper 50s across the forecast area. Winds continue sustained out of the south, 5-15 mph.
Widespread rain will continue through the rest of today. The front carrying the rain and moisture will slide south later this evening and through the morning tomorrow. This will bring a break in the rainfall for most residents north of the southern parkways, despite clouds hanging around. The southern counties will keep rain showers in the mix through most of the day Wednesday. Wednesday night will consist of another low moving in and bringing the rain chance up for everyone. Heavy rain showers and a few thunderstorms are possible Wednesday night into Thursday morning. This will bring the biggest flood threat of the next three days. Rain continues through the day Thursday, but cold air rushing in will change some of the rain over to snow. We are still looking at our first potential measurable snowfall of the winter at the end of the week.
