830pm Tuesday Live Weather Update: Tonight’s agenda: 1. Radar update 2. Big Wednesday cool down. 3. Two week outlook.
Heavy rain possible Tuesday night. Below normal temperatures settle in for a few days. Work week to end with sunshine.
Tuesday was a cloudy, breezy and mild day. Temperatures began in the upper 40s to low 50s. Daytime highs climbed to the upper 50s to low to mid 60s. Don’t expect that mild air to stick around long. Another strong cold front will move through the area Tuesday night. This front will bring plenty of rain during the night. That rain will likely be heavy at times and should decrease begin the front late tonight. Expect any leftover rain to end Wednesday morning as colder and drier air eases into the area. Models now indicate that much of the area could see anywhere from one to one and a half inches of rain. An isolated 2″ total will be possible over the eastern half of the area. The good news is that despite the chance for heavy rain, severe weather is not expect.

Expect the clouds to begin to decrease Wednesday afternoon. Even though we night see a little bit of late day sunshine Wednesday, temperatures will stay rather chilly with highs in the low to mid 40s. It will also be rather windy Wednesday with a NW wind of around 15 mph. That sunshine will likely stick around for the rest of the work week. Look for highs to eventually settle into the upper 40s to low to mid 50s. Overnight lows will range from the upper 20s to mid 30s.
The rest of the week is also looking rather dry. Models do hint at a few minor disturbances. The first will arrive Saturday and the second late Monday or Monday night. Both look to bring very light precipitation that will probably be rain. We’ll have to keep an eye on the second disturbance Monday night. IF (and that is a big if) we see any winter precip in the week ahead, that could be our biggest shot. Even then, that chance looks to rather low. Stay Tuned
Average High/Low for today’s date: 58/36.
