Storms back in

Better rain chances Wednesday
Posted at 2:44 PM, Apr 28, 2020

A few showers have fallen across the state this morning thanks to a weak front crossing. Truthfully, it’s been mostly cloud coverage, but a few sprinkles have left behind evidence. Other than the showers, it’s been a warmer day thanks to a southwesterly wind that will get stronger into the afternoon. You may seem some blue skies throughout the afternoon, but not quite to the amount we had yesterday.

We may see a few light and scattered showers at times this afternoon and evening, but the better chance was always going to be tomorrow. Wednesday will start with abundant cloud coverage and the showers moving in from the west. A line of heavy rain and thunderstorms will slide through the I-75 corridor through the late morning hours. It should complete its trip through the eastern counties later in the afternoon/early evening. From this line, expect heavy rain at times and a few strong wind gusts. Severe weather is not expected at this time, but one or two areas along the line may push damaging wind gusts limits. After the line passes, showers become more scattered and there will still be a few pop-up thunderstorms around. These leave through the overnight when scattered light to moderate showers take over and bring us through most of the morning on Thursday. Rainfall amounts from the entire two-day event should be in the 0.50” to 0.75” range collectively with some areas getting up to an inch.
