Rain showers exit to the east tonight as the first in a series of rainy days comes to an end. Most of the region received about a quarter of an inch of rain as the system had little moisture to work with by the time it crossed the Appalachian Range.
Wednesday will be a dry and mild day as the mercury in the thermometer will rise into the 60s. This is about 15 – 20 degrees above normal for mid-January. Normal highs in early April are the middle 60s. Should see a mix of clouds and sun, with more clouds than sun. Rain returns for Thursday.
Thursday is another rainy day, as well as another mild day.
The rain may generate some thunder, but as of now, the forecast is calling for only rain. Some models have backed off the widespread and heavy rain and are leaning toward off-and-on showers. Sounds more reasonable.
Friday will be cooler and dry with highs in the upper 40s to low 50s as high pressure takes over. Saturday will be similar, but cloudy late in the day ahead of the next round of rain slated for Sunday.
