Weather Outlook: Dreary

Another gloomy day today with occasional light rain falling this afternoon. There hasn’t been a lot of rain accumulation, which was expected. However, tonight’s rain chances will bring moderate rain at times and could add up to between 1/4” and 1/2” before departing tomorrow. While this again isn’t a lot and thankfully won’t have much of an impact on river flooding, it is our best chance for actual rainfall of the week.

Showers should taper off tomorrow morning, but the clouds will persist all day with only partial clearing possible in the afternoon. Temperatures will continue to be below average with the lack of meaningful sunshine and will top out only near 50. Thursday looks drier, but it may not be completely dry. A few light showers are possible, especially in the morning.

Temperatures will start to increase with highs in the upper 50s. We will finally see some sunshine Friday with highs climbing into the lower 60s, and rain chances are almost zero.

Showers become possible starting in late evening but mainly overnight into early Saturday morning. This means that most, if not all of Saturday looks dry as well. Highs will peak on Saturday near or above average in the upper 60s.

More rain chances return later Sunday into early next week. You’ll want to keep your umbrella nearby for the foreseeable future, but you won’t need it all the time.
