Umbrellas, galoshes and sweatshirts should be in your arsenal to survive the next two days. A quickly developing low pressure system is coming out of the Rockies and is heading our way. We’re already seeing some signs of this low with sprinkles and light showers this morning. This is only the beginning of today’s rain. Those sprinkles eventually become more showers, then a soaking all out rain after 7 pm tonight. Heavy rain with a few rumbles of thunder continue overnight. New rainfall totals could leave behind 1-2” and a few isolated spots may see up to 3”. Some showers linger into tomorrow morning, but then it looks as if some drizzle will be stubborn and stay with us until tomorrow evening.
Not only will this be a rainy and damp next 48 hours, but also a cool one. With all this extra moisture and highs near 50, a nice warm sweatshirt will certainly help ward off those chills. Back to sunshine to close out the work week and highs in the middle 50s to lower 60s.
We’re keeping a close eye on the weekend. Models diverge on the timing of a low pressure system passing through the Upper Midwest. In both scenarios, we stay on the relatively dry side of things, but it will be watched closely for any changes as more information is known about its track and development.
