We’ll make it 4 nice days in a row today although it will overall be a cloudier day than yesterday. Clouds will increase during the midday and afternoon hours.
A strong low pressure area will track across the Mississippi and lower Ohio Valleys through Wednesday, sending a pretty good plume of moisture our way. THis simulated radar takes us through early tomorrow morning, showing the rain arriving around or a little before daybreak.
Rain will be steadiest in the morning hours Wednesday and then a little more “hit or miss” in the afternoon. Then steadier rain will return Wednesday night.
This system will produce a major severe weather outbreak in the Deep South today ionto tonight.
We are not expecting severe weather here but there might be a rumble of thunder late Wednesday.
Rainfall totals from Wednesday to Wednesday night will likely average an inch or so.
WINTER RETURNS THURSDAY
While we can still see rain or a mix early in the day Thursday, wet snow will take over as the morning wears on. The snow will probably not stick much on the roads (especially the main roads) during the daylight hours Thursday but other surfaces should cool enough to allow the snow to stick.
Snow showers will linger into Thursday night. Current thinking for snow accumulations is 1-3″ although some local amounts to 4″ may be possible north of I-80.
After a cold Friday with temperatures in the 20s, a nice rebound will occur over the weekend and we may even bounce back into the 50s by Sunday. A cool shot is then likely to arrive early next week.
