Rain On The Way

RAIN COMING: Rain and possibly a thunderstorm today after lunch, high of around 52°, rain continuing tonight with a low in the 40's. Slight chance for rain on Wednesday with falling temperatures all day, highs will be in the upper 40's in the morning falling to the upper 30's by late in afternoon. For Wednesday night, MUCH COLDER with lows in the lower to mid 20's. Highs only in the middle 30's for Thursday under a sun-filled sky. TOTAL RAINFALL ACCUMULATIONS may exceed 1" in many locations. We'll get another chance to measure using our CoCoRaHS rain gauges (pictured at left).

WEEKEND OUTLOOK: We may see snow develop on Friday and stick with us through Saturday night. I will continue to monitor this developing situation and post as needed on the possibilities.
