We’re waking up to cloudy skies this morning with temperatures running in the upper 30s or low 40s for most. A chilly start will eventually turn into a mild afternoon even with the abundant cloud coverage and the incoming rain. Visibility is fine in most locations but may be lacking in the river valleys.
As we move into the afternoon and evening, rain will arrive from the west in scattered fashion. Thunderstorms will be strongest southwest of us, but we still have the chance for some strong storms to cross the central and eastern portions of the state. Heavy downpours and strong wind gusts will be the two main components with the incoming round. Most, if not all, will remain below severe limits, but one or two may cross the threshold. Regardless, rain and storms will continue overnight into Wednesday morning and then come to a close. We are looking at a couple days of a break in between this storm system and one for the end of the week which will bring in a cool down, but before we get there, temperatures will soar into the middle or upper 70s for late-week.
