Warmer on Wednesday, heavier rain/few t-storms possible Wednesday night

A disturbance that brought us off-and-on showers today will be moving further east tonight, taking the rain with it. Besides a stray shower overnight, lingering clouds, and areas of fog, we'll generally be cool & quiet through early Wednesday with lows in the upper 30s/low 40s.

Wet weather will then begin to head our way from the west mid-late week. Cloud cover will be building back in and thickening up through the day Wednesday. A few showers/an isolated t-storm could pop up during the day, but most of the heaviest rain looks to fall overnight Wednesday night. During the day, temps should reach the upper 50s/low 60s.

Rounds of widespread heavier rain, along with a few embedded thunderstorms look possible Wednesday evening, especially between the hours of 10PM Wednesday to 1AM Thursday. While most of the heaviest rain looks to stay to our northwest, our area could still receive an inch or more of rainfall in many places, so localized flooding issues could still arise, especially with higher rainfall rates in any thunderstorms.

Right now, severe weather is looking unlikely, but an isolated stronger storm or two could still make into the Appalachians, possibly with some gusty winds here and there. We will update any severe risk depending on how weather data looks Wednesday morning, and how much sun/instability we can get during the afternoon before the line of showers/storms moves in. Lows Wednesday night will bottom out in the low upper 40s/low 50s for most.

Rain should become spotty/isolated into our first day of Spring (Thursday). Highs will reach the upper 60s/low 70s by the afternoon, with mostly just a bunch of lingering clouds during the day. A frontal system will then bring rain (and few snowflakes at higher spots) back Friday PM through the early morning hours of Saturday. The weekend to follow is looking drier, but cooler with highs retreating back to the 40s on Sat & Sun, and lows falling back into the 20s and 30s. Stay tuned!
