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.
That should wrap up this forecast. Thanks for stopping by and be sure to get out today!
