Cooler & Wetter Next Few Days

video preview image

Temperatures were on the warmer side this afternoon, but most areas failed to reach the 70 degree mark like originally anticipated. This was due to the high clouds which moved into the region through the afternoon. This evening we will remain mild as clouds continue to increase ahead of our approaching storm system. A broad trough in the upper levels of the atmosphere is going to push east and bring several disturbances our way over the course of the next few days.

The first of the systems will arrive tomorrow morning. Showers will begin late this evening along the Coast and continue to spread further inland throughout the day tomorrow. A good supply of moisture will bring widespread showers for much of the day tomorrow. The consistent and sometimes heavy rain showers are going to drop several inches of rain along the Coast, and higher water amounts in the higher terrain also. As the cold front moves through, winds will begin to pick up as well. Particularly for the Coastline, ridges, and East Side.

By Friday the second of the disturbances will follow. A warm front will move through Friday morning, followed by the associated cold front Friday evening. Spotty showers will continue through Saturday and the next system will move inland Saturday evening. All in all, a cooler and wetter weather pattern will continue for the remainder of the week into the weekend.

Thanks for logging on & enjoy the rest of your week!
