Wednesday: Numerous rain showers

As we’ve seen on Monday and Tuesday mornings, an intensification in shower activity in the region is possible on Wednesday morning. This could once again slow down the morning commute if too much rain falls too quickly. Unfortunately, this type of weather pattern makes it very difficult to determine where the heaviest of rain will setup. Hopefully the areas that saw large amounts of rain on Tuesday will be spared of any torrential rain on Wednesday.

During the afternoon, expect to see scattered shower activity throughout the region. We are more likely to see breaks in the rain, as opposed to continuous rain, but heavy rain and flooding will still be a concern.

Rainfall totals will be patchy again with some folks seeing high totals and others seeing little to none. The heaviest of totals will be where storms train over the same areas time and time again. Since street flooding is still a concern, remember that if water covers the road, Turn Around, Don’t Drown.

We’ll see high temperatures remain in the 80s as the rain and clouds keep temperatures below average.

Thursday: Steady decrease in rain

The area of low pressure and tropical wave that have worked together to produce the recent rainfall will finally start to drift out of the region by Thursday. However, they may deliver a parting shot of rain to the area on Thursday morning before leaving. It currently appears that by late Thursday the rain should be gone, or at least substantially decreased in coverage.

The weekend

After the wettest week we’ve had in months, we’ll bring back the sunshine for Friday through Sunday. High temperatures will also respond by climbing to the 90s again. A staunch breeze will pick up on Saturday, but all outdoor plans should go off without a problem.
