A quiet day overall with varying sky conditions. High thin coverage is working across, bringing intermittent cloudy skies, while sunnier conditions are elsewhere. As we get further into the day, coverage will thicken up more as a disturbance approaches from the west. In terms of temperatures today, highs will peak a bit warmer, finding the mid and upper 60s. Any showers will hold off until late overnight and into Wednesday.
Looking at model guidance, an unsettled and generally wet next few days can be expected. As highlighted above, scattered showers will be possible late overnight and into Wednesday morning, where drier conditions generally rule out tomorrow afternoon. By Thursday, a low pressure system will be pressing in where the best shower or storm potential will be in place. Widespread rainfall is likely, with a few thunderstorms not ruled out as well. Lingering showers will then be possible Friday and Saturday, before briefly drier and cooler conditions then find us late weekend into early next week.
With several disturbances working through, what do rainfall totals look like? Well, a good soaking is in store. From Today through Saturday, amounts between 1 and 2 inches are likely. Locally higher amounts within thunderstorms exceeding 2" will be possible. Fortunately, this comes over a several day span so flooding risks are low but not entirely ruled out.
Enjoy the last of the mixed sunshine and dry conditions, as a series of disturbances look to bring several bouts of rainfall the next few days.
