I hope everyone had a good weekend! In case you missed it, Punxsutawney Phil did NOT see his shadow; meaning an early Spring is predicted. Though his predictions the past decade have only been 40% accurate, we are definitely starting off right with high's today in the mid to upper 60's.
Looking ahead, our next weather makers are just to the west. Showers will arrive early tomorrow and work through until Friday when cooler air arrives.
Model guidance suggests showers to begin working in tomorrow morning and continuing through Wednesday. A secondary low will provide heavier showers and storms Wednesday night and Thursday before cooler air follows for Friday. Mostly cloudy skies Friday will lead to scattered showers Saturday, and eventually, much needed sunnier skies for Sunday.
With rain likely much of the work week, rain totals will be high. Though the severe threat is low, be weary of flash flooding. A couple of inches is expected to fall Tuesday and Wednesday and with heavier showers/storms into Thursday, water can accumulate quickly.
That will conclude today's forecast but keep the umbrellas handy, lots of rain is on the way.
