Good Saturday evening. A noticeable cooler and windy day today — high temperatures ranging from the upper 30s northwest to the mid-40s southeast. Over an inch-and-a-half of rain fell in parts of Lee county, with the entirety of the farthest south stretch of counties seeing measurable rainfall.
1. Sunday Tranquility
Another quiet and cool day is expected tomorrow, though a bit warmer than today. High temperatures will peak in the 40s and 50s under partly cloudy-to-sunny skies. Winds will still make things feel a bit cooler, at 5-15 MPH with gusts to 20-25.
2. Temperatures Rebounding Next Week
After a cool weekend, temperatures will rebound a bit by Tuesday towards our seasonable normals in the upper 50s and 60s. Some rain and perhaps a rain/snow mix is possible on Monday night towards Tuesday as a disturbance moves by, but this should not add up to much. Temperatures will be hampered a little bit by rain on Wednesday and Thursday, but temperatures rise once again to the mid-60s and 70s towards the weekend.
3. Wednesday Rainfall
A widespread rainfall event is expected beginning Wednesday morning and continuing through the early morning on Friday. Models and the WPC are pegging around an inch of rainfall for many areas with this event, but as we saw today, totals may be locally higher in some areas. We’ll have to see how the evening 00z runs pan out with further details expected by tomorrow. Regardless, those especially living near area rivers and in low-lying areas should be aware of this potential.
