Guess What? Another Wet Week
SHOTS OF RAIN THROUGH THURSDAY; COOLER TO END THE WEEK
Sunday has continued very dreary across our viewing area. Patches of light to moderate rain have passed through, holding temperatures down into the upper 40s and lower 50s so far today. We’ll see only a slight warmup today with highs in the 55-60 degree range under a cloudy sky. A batch of heavier rain and thunderstorms further south along the Gulf coast has shut off rich moisture here and prevented anything heavier from falling in our area.
A slight reprieve in rain chances are in order for Monday with a warmup as well. Highs will be mainly in the mid to upper 60s. Rain chances return for Monday night into Tuesday and Wednesday; with warmer temperatures, a few thunderstorms are possible, though nothing strong or severe is currently expected. Highs Tuesday and Wednesday will rise into the upper 60s to lower 70s with lows in the 50s to lower 60s both mornings.
Much cooler air will arrive as a cold front FINALLY squashes the rain chances later into Thursday. There have been a few social media posts floating around about computer models showing chances for wintry precipitation later this week; those models are WAY out to lunch at this point as it looks like moisture will depart before the colder air arrives.
