Clouds have already started to make their way into the region this morning. They will continue to increase throughout the day and we’ll see cooler temperatures today. Highs will only top out in the low 60’s.
A strong low pressure system is making it’s way across the country. Moist, southerly flow ahead of the front is providing instability at the surface, and support at upper levels is also in place. These two factors will contribute to some severe weather overnight tonight and into the first part of tomorrow. Showers will start in the late afternoon/early evening, with thunderstorms and heavier rain arriving tonight. The worst of the system will exit by midday tomorrow, but there will be some leftover showers that last into tomorrow night.
The National Weather Service has already issued a Flash Flood Watch for a lot of counties, as well as a Wind Advisory. Rainfall amounts will generally be in the 1-2″ range, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see isolated locations exceed this amount.
Sunday, we return to sunshine and warmer weather. In general, the first half of next week looks awesome as temperatures will warm each day through Wednesday, where by then we could see highs in the low to mid 70’s.
