Showers and storms have been working through the area this afternoon, and will continue to work through in a couple of rounds through the evening and into the early overnight hours. Rain will come to an end around midnight for virtually everyone, and then skies will clear. Wednesday will be the first dry day we have had in a while, and the first of five straight days of dry weather.
Temperatures will still be in the upper 60s for highs on Wednesday but will quickly return to the mid 70s by Thursday and near to at 80 by Saturday. Clouds will start to increase Saturday and Sunday ahead of our next system that will be arriving on Monday.
Monday and Tuesday will see the return of rain across the area as our next area of low pressure moves over the region. This system will need to be watched closely as we get closer as there could be a threat for severe weather. Since we are six days out, a lot of things are uncertain, but it is something we will be monitoring. Rain will linger on Tuesday as our system pulls away to the north with showers and much cooler temperatures.
Area rivers should crest Wednesday and Thursday and start to recede through the weekend. Still be very careful on roadways, especially tonight and tomorrow morning, as the added rainfall will hamper the withdrawal of water.
