Wednesday will be our transition day, and will begin quite nicely. The high will be in the mid 60s, just a touch cooler than Tuesday. Clouds will begin moving in aloft later in the day and into the evening. It will stay warm Wednesday night with that cloud cover, sticking in the low 50s. We are still several days out, but lets take a preliminary look at next Thursday and through the weekend. It looks like we could see some light rain begin next Thursday morning, with moderate rain moving in late in the day and lasting overnight into Friday morning. An inch or less here in town. Almost insignificant consider the last two series. Still, this could be enough to create some commute headaches on Friday morning. It does look like the rain pushes south by Friday sunrise. We could have a decent day on Friday. Not sunny, but not rainy. A brief break though, as the next system pushes ashore Friday afternoon or evening. This one is going to hit south of us, but we will still get some rain. It currently looks heaviest overnight, with showery weather persisting during the day Saturday and into Sunday. From there the breaks look minimal, with a series of storms pushing in Sunday night and Tuesday morning.
We are looking at weather 4 to 12 days out, so confidence in any outcome starts low and decreases as we look further out. Regardless, it does look like more rain will be coming our way. The models have backed off a bit in the long term, but we should still plan for several more inches of water this month. And it is only February.
