Here Comes The Rain Again...And Again, And Again

Cut off low this week
Bottle up thoughts of sunshine. You’ll need to in order to make it through the week.  A cut off low will set up shop the next several days.  It’s called a cut off low because the storm will be “cut off” from the jet stream (the force that normally steers storms along). That means the storm will sit and spin Tuesday through Thursday producing lots of clouds and periods of rain.  It will not rain for three days straight.  No need to prepare the ark.  But keep the umbrella handy as waves of energy rotate around the upper level low.  Friday will be our transitional day leading up to a dry weekend with more in the way of sunshine.  By that point, we’ll deserve it!

Tonight: Cloudy, maybe a sprinkle. Low: Mid 40s.

Tomorrow: Mostly cloudy with scattered showers. High: lower to middle 60s.

Wednesday: Cloudy, cool and breezy with periods of rain.  High: upper 50s to around 60 degrees. 
North wind at 10-20 mph.

Thursday: Cloudy with scattered showers. High: upper 50s to around 60 degrees.

Friday: Mostly cloudy, damp. High: around 60 degrees.

Saturday: Partly cloudy and dry! High: lower 60s statewide.
