Good morning! Don't forget those umbrellas through the day as showers will be likely on and off. Looking at end of the day totals, we will generally will range from 3/4 of an inch to one inch. This is good news as abnormally dry conditions still persist throughout the state. (More details below)
Showers will continue to burden us throughout the day so prepare for a wet one. We could get a few breaks off and on, but generally speaking, showers continue through the afternoon. Overnight, things begin to settle down and dry back out but cloudy skies stick around for Friday. Another system looks to bring rainfall Saturday as the track has moved a bit further west. This time around we could see rain, freezing rain, and mixed precipitation. For now, rain is the main concern Saturday but as temperatures fall near freezing overnight, we could see freezing rain to sleet. We'll continue to provide more updates as we get closer to time.
Abnormally dry conditions continue to haunt the state as we work towards the Spring "fire season". Hopefully these next few rounds of rain bring enough moisture to diminish the present conditions. The next update comes later today, so we'll cover any changes there might be with it tomorrow.
Unsettled weather continues into this weekend so be prepared for updates ahead. For now, stay warm, stay dry, and have a good one! Please consider being a sponsor for this years 2021 Almanac. More information can be found at SecretCityWeather.com/Sponsors
