Suchan Says: Chance of Rain Returns

Showers and storms to the northwest now. Should see some additional showers or storms into our northwestern zones later tonight

It has been a welcome string of dry days in the area but that will be changing Tuesday.  That’s not to say a washout is ahead but the daily need to take an umbrella with you just in case will be necessary.

First thing in the morning, scattered showers or a few thunderstorms are possible in the northwestern half of the viewing area.  The rest of the area will likely be dry and mild in the 60s.

During the afternoon to evening, temperatures will range from the lower to mid 70s up north to the mid to even upper 80s down south.  Areas to the south will also have a lower end rain chance with mainly spotty late day thunderstorms possible.  One or two of these storms could be on the stronger side with small hail and brief wind gusts but widespread severe weather is not expected.

Evening showers or a thunderstorm

Wednesday will have a cold front south of the area allowing a northeast breeze to build in.  Morning showers are possible followed by a mostly cloudy, dry afternoon and evening.  Highs only in the lower to mid 70s.

Looking ahead to the weekend?!  Once again, sunny and dry weather looks to be in the forecast cards as a late week cold front attached to an area of low pressure across the northern tier of the country sweeps out of the area taking abundant moisture with it.   Incredibly, a third weekend of great weather!
