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!
