Teachman’s Take: Rainy…Again!
April 5, 2017

The back side of the storm system is working through this morning.  That means a steady rain is expected for commuters up until the lunch hour.

As the morning goes on, I wouldn’t be surprised to see a snowflake or a sleet pellet try to mix in with the rain to the northeast of the metro.  By this afternoon, the steady rains become spotty.

  

Winds will be strong from the north at 15 to 25 MPH and gust to 35 MPH.  We’re under a Wind Advisory until 7 PM.

There is also a flood watch in effect through early afternoon.  Some streams, creeks and rivers are running high today.

Temps this morning will be cool giving a raw feeling to the air in the middle 40s.  As the rain starts to taper to spotty showers this afternoon, temps should be able to rebound to the middle 50s.  I see a few breaks of sun this afternoon as well!

Clouds clear overnight and temps will dip into the 30s.  Some patchy frost is possible Thursday morning.  But, at least the sunshine is back and will dominate Thursday through Saturday.  Temps will also recover.  Highs will be cool on Thursday in the upper 50s.  Sixties return for Friday before temps soar over the weekend.  Saturday will be ideal in the middle 70s with plenty of sunshine.  Clouds filter back in on Sunday and any rain should hold off until after dark.  Temps will be near 80.  Storms still look confined to the morning for opening day at the “K”.  First pitch will be warm near 70 as clouds break up.  Temps will be slightly cooler next Tuesday and Wednesday in the 60s.  Rain returns next Wednesday.
Take care,
Teach
