Rain and a lot of it! Then cold! Snow?!


Rain is starting to overspread the area. There will be even more widespread coverage later today. Flood watches are up as we have a chance for some real heavy rain overnight. Totals will come to 2 to 3 inches! Tonight, as dynamics start to come through, severe storms with gusty winds look likely to scatter through the region, but be somewhat isolated. Windy conditions will also accompany this system so expect some power issues. Rain will taper off for most by about noon tomorrow but the gusty winds will start dropping temps for what will end up a very cold stretch.

Cold is the word! Temps will pretty much remain in the 40s through the weekend south, and 30s may be the high temps for the northern region straight to Monday! Cold 20s north and low 30s south for low temps. Winter cold!

What will happen Sunday or early next week. There does seem to good potential of a system that will either be Sunday or within a few days of Sunday. As usual, models are struggling and jumping around on which system will be the main feature and cause the snow and rain. Some analysis shows that there would be a rain component to the system for many if it happens one way, and much less rain if it were to occur another. A few factors are being watched and I am a little less certain today on what the outcome will be!

All for now!
