Nice Now; Flooding Concerns Mid Week

A very nice day is shaping up across the region. Gusty southerly winds will drive warmer temperatures into the region despite mostly cloudy skies. Highs will top out around 73°.

Mostly cloudy skies will continue overnight, as well as strong southerly winds. This will lead to very mild conditions as lows only drop low to mid 60s.

Another very warm day is expected on Tuesday. Southerly flow will once again win the battle despite mostly cloudy skies. We should warm into the mid to upper 70s across the region. Rain will move into the region late overnight and into Wednesday morning as lows drop into the upper 50s. Temperatures are so warm due to the upper level wind flow pattern, seen below.

A very rainy Wednesday is on tap for the region. A slow moving cold front will work into the region Wednesday morning. This will lead to an abundance of rain and cooler temperatures. A washout is expected as temperatures remain steady in the upper 50s.

A lot of rain is expected Wednesday. This raises concerns for flash flooding. The Weather Prediction Center has placed our region in a “slight” risk of flash flooding. Think of this as a level 2 out of 4 threat. Low-lying areas and creeks may begin to flood by Wednesday evening and overnight as we’re expecting 2 to 3″ of rain.

A line of heavy showers and storms will form to the north of the region along a cold front. This cold front will move through the region in the early morning hours Friday, leading to lows in the low to mid 40s as the wind shifts out of the north.

Temperatures will drop throughout the day on Friday. A cold rain is expected to give way to isolated showers Friday afternoon. Temperatures by 3 PM will be in the upper 30s. Northerly winds could gust up to 25 mph.

Mostly cloudy skies will still be in place Friday night, which will limit how far lows go down. Right now, I’m expecting lows to fall right around freezing.

A few showers will be likely today, especially late this morning and into the afternoon. A better chance of heavier rain lies to the southeast of the region.

Temperatures will drop into the mid 30s tonight with a chance of rain continuing. The freezing rain concerns seem to be to the west and north of the region, so I don’t expect any tonight. The National Weather Service agrees.

Rain will likely continue Sunday morning before waning after noon. Temperatures will be cold, despite decreasing clouds in the afternoon. Highs will only top out in the mid to upper 30s.

A chance of a wintry mix may be possible Sunday night as lows drop into the mid 20s. Accumulations, if any, will be light.

Watch for a few slick spots Monday morning as the cold temperatures may cause a few patches of black ice to form. Overall, a warmer day is forecast Monday as highs top out in the low 40s under partly cloudy skies. Take what you can get.
