We have almost made it through the heat wave! Cooler air is on the way. Tonight we will have a few scattered showers across the region, some heavier rain is possible through the northern tier. Overnight lows will still be in the upper 70s. Tomorrow morning we will start off with some scattered showers turning in to more widespread and heavy rain through the afternoon/ evening. There could be some strong to severe thunderstorms associated with this front. It looks like we’ll get between 1-2″ of rain but there could be amounts higher than that. This could cause isolated flooding. Rain will linger into Wednesday but it won’t be as widespread or heavy.
This rain is associated with a cold front and that brings some much needed relief we have all been waiting for! High temperatures through the rest of the week will be in the low to mid 80s. It’s also looking like we will be dry for much of the week after Wednesday.
We are also keeping our eyes on Tropical Depression 3, it is near the Bahamas. It could bring some rain to Florida, but it is expected to stay offshore. Stay tuned for updates!
