Another Soaking

After a gorgeous and dry weekend, now it’s time to pay the price. Areas of rain with embedded heavier downpours are moving through overnight. Don’t be surprised if you hear a rumble of thunder either!  Even though the rivers are high, the main stem rivers should be able to handle tonight’s soaking rain with 0.5”-1.0” for most of the state. No flood watches have been issued although nuisance poor drainage flooding is certainly possible.

Scattered downpours will linger into Tuesday morning. The rest of the day looks breezy and mild. This is an afternoon where temperatures will be unable to reach their true potential.  If we had full sunshine, 70 degrees would be within reach. Instead limited sunshine will keep temperatures capped in the 60s. A southwest wind could gust up to 30 miles an hour. Winds will remain gusty through Wednesday with plenty of sunshine. After a brief cooldown, the rest of the week looks warmer than average.

Tonight: Rain developing, some heavy at times. .5-1” for most. Low: 40s.

Tomorrow: A few lingering morning showers/downpours. Breezy and mild. Clouds breaking for some sunshine. High temperatures in the low to mid 60s inland, Near 60 for the shoreline.

Wednesday: Mostly sunny, windy and cooler. Northwest wind at 15 to 25 miles and hour. High temperatures in the middle 50s.

Thursday: Mostly sunny, milder, not as windy as recent days. High temperatures in the upper 50s to around 60 degrees.

Friday: Becoming cloudy with the chance for a few showers. High temperatures in the middle to upper 50s.

Saturday: Chance for a lingering morning shower. Otherwise, clouds break for some sunshine. High temperatures in the lower 60s.
