Good Monday and welcome to October. The tenth month of the year is off and running on a very soggy note as a good old fashioned rainstorm moves in. This will make for some wild temp swings over the next few days as the storm works right on top of us. Speaking of wild temps… a big push of chill is lurking for the weekend and next week.
Rain overspreads the state from south to north early today and some rumbles of thunder will be possible. The rain will be heavy at times and the clouds and rain should keep our temps in the 50s for most of the day.
This is what you need to track today’s rain:
Rainfall Since Midnight
Showers and storms will continue overnight and into Tuesday and a few of the storms tomorrow could be strong. Our temps will really increase late tonight as a push of mild air blows in from the south. Highs Tuesday will be well into the 70s as our winds crank up.
The low pressure works off to our northeast by Wednesday and this allows for cooler air to filter back in. Readings may have a tough time getting too far from 60 degrees for highs with leftover showers.
Thursday sees our temps bounce back up into the 70s ahead of a strong front arriving by the weekend. The daily details of the big chill will have to be worked out in the next few days, but all the models are still very steady in showing a big buckle in the jet stream:
Have a great start to October and take care.
