Quiet for now, rain expected late Tuesday

Mild pattern returns, rain arrives late Tuesday

Looking back at the month of February the region has been relatively mild.  There have been a few days of cold or “winter-like” days, but not many.  In fact, there have only been three days with below normal average temperatures (factoring in the high and low) which classifies this month so far as a mild month.  The Rainfall has been impressive this month with 3.69” which is over 2” above where we should be at this time during the month. 

As for the forecast this week, expect to see the clouds move in as the night moves along ahead of some rain that is slated for Tuesday.  The rainfall amounts are not going to be all that impressive but the skies will be filled with clouds giving us yet another dreary day.  There may be some sunshine in the morning ahead of the rain but overall the theme will once again be gray.  The rain will slowly cross the region and exit early on Wednesday so the evening commute Tuesday and the morning commute Wednesday will both be impacted by some road spray and slick conditions. 

The rest of the work week is looking a bit cooler and dry.  High pressure moves in and will bring in some cooler conditions from the north.  Expect to see plenty of sunshine each day from Wednesday until at least Sunday. Temperature readings will be on the cooler side after the rain, but not bitter.  Highs will be in the low 40s with lows in the 20s. Normal for this week should be highs near 50 and lows near 30 so not too far from the average. 

Stay Safe.
