Rainy Period Approaching.

Today, Tuesday, will be another splendid day.  Not hot (yes, it actually was hot) like yesterday, but nice and warm.  About 70F on King Street.  A bit cooler closer to the water and exposed locations.  Overnight lows are trending up.  It is about 40F now.  Daytime highs will trend down.  And cloud cover will increase on Wednesday.  It will be the transition day with highs in the mid 60s.  There is a good chance of light rain developing by nightfall.

With that cloud cover, Thursday morning will be in the mid 40s, with the daytime high rising to just the upper 50s.  It is going to feel chilly after yesterday's warmth.  Light to moderate rain through the morning hours, with breaks possible mid day.  We could see a half inch or more through the period.  It will remain warm overnight, with Friday morning in the low 50s.  More rain comes in early Friday, followed by a cold front mid day.  Could be heavy at times.  And now it looks like that rain could persist through the coming weekend.  Another inch plus of rain by mid day Saturday.

I'll keep looking at the models, as they are shifting back toward a wet solution through early next week.  There still appears to be another prolonged dry period developing, but time will tell.  Get out there today and enjoy your last day of sunshine.  And clean up the yard of anything you may have left out due to the fine weather.  Get those bikes under cover, put away the garden tools and close those windows.  We will return to the wet in the coming days.
