Widespread rain is likely for both your Tuesday and Wednesday. The first round has already moved into the area and will last on and off for most of today. We may dry out briefly late, but more widespread rain will move in by Wednesday, especially during the afternoon. An additional 1-3″ of rainfall is possible during this time prompting the Flash Flood Watch for parts of the region.
By Thursday we will stay mostly dry. Any showers that do happen will likely occur during the first half of the day. Skies should be clear to partly cloudy with winds perhaps turning a bit gusty out of the west by afternoon. Temps behind the front will be much cooler with highs only in the upper-60’s/low-70’s for Thursday afternoon despite the clearing skies.
We’ll remain dry for Friday/Saturday with a quick warming trend taking place and more showers/storms possible by next Sunday as our next weather system approaches on Memorial Day Weekend.
