BLOG: Trading the Sun for Showers

RPM_4 KM HR_1545907005036.png.jpg

The past few days have been nice and bright, and not to mention, seasonable!  We’ll enjoy one more dry day before the rain takes over tomorrow and our pattern turns unsettled for the new year.

As you can see, we’ll not only be tracking showers for Friday, but we’ll keep shower chances going through the end of 2018 and the start of 2019.

Suffice to say, enjoy this bright day while we have it.  Expect some high, thin clouds out there today with temperatures topping out in the low-50s.  The mercury will initially drop to 50° this evening, but rise close to 60° by Friday morning thanks to increasing clouds and winds turning out of the south.  These clouds and showers, all associated with this sizable storm system that is marching across the country.

Blizzard and winter storm warnings have been issued for much of the Midwest, while tornado watches and warnings are popping up in the south.  Luckily, this storm won’t have a huge impact on us – no snow, no severe weather, just your garden variety rain showers.

Spotty showers are possible tomorrow morning, but steadier rain will take over by the afternoon/evening hours.

Despite dreary conditions, temperatures will rise into the upper-60s.  It will be a breezy day as well with winds out of the south between 10 to 20 MPH, gusting to 30 MPH at times.  The wet weather will move out by Saturday morning.  Saturday will be a gorgeous day with scattered clouds and highs in the low-60s.  Temperatures will tumble into the mid-40s by Sunday.  Sunday isn’t looking as wet as it was yesterday, but we are still keeping partly sunny skies with a chance of spotty showers in the forecast.

As I said before, it looks like you’ll be dodging the raindrops if you’ll be out ringing in the new year.  Showers expected Monday evening and Tuesday.
