Dry Wednesday, More Rain Thursday

Take a deep breath!  Pollen levels took a little dip with last night's rain.

We get a little break today! Morning clouds and patchy fog will break for some sunshine. The air will become more comfortable and less humid. It will not be as warm as yesterday. Instead of highs in the mid to upper 80s, we'll hold in the mid 70s to around 80 degrees.

ECMWF Total rainfall by Thursday night
But we're not done with the rain yet!

The cluster of thunderstorms bringing severe weather to the Midwest this morning will bring us rain late tonight into tomorrow morning. Rain will come down heavy at times with some poor drainage flooding possible. But I'm not expecting severe weather around here. That's a relief!  Most of the rain will fall in the morning with a lingering shower possible in the afternoon. But I remain cautiously optimistic we'll get some late day improvement.

You can also see with the computer model to the left that the heaviest rain will likely fall south of NYC, in central and southern NJ/Long Island.

No severe weather and now more good news??! Yep.  It looks like we clear out on Friday and this weekend looks sunny, warm, low humidity, spectacular!

GFS High temps for Sunday
