The big weather news is the low pressure system cutting across the middle of the country. This system is going to bring a lot of snow with possible blizzard conditions to the Midwest and a lot of rain to the Southeast. For our area that means a lot of rain. It looks like the rest your Monday is going to stay dry but dreary with the rest of the day remaining mostly cloudy. Highs will be near 43 degrees. It won’t get too cold tonight because of the cloud cover. Expect the low to be in the mid 30’s. Tuesday will be a complete washout with rain starting early Tuesday morning, continuing throughout the day and on into the overnight hours. Tuesday’s high should be near 50 degree and a low in the upper 40’s. It appears that the heaviest rains will occur later in the day into the overnight hours on Tuesday. Rainfall amounts are going to be between 1 and 3 inches for our area, depending on location. Looking at the 12 utc run of the NAM, on Tuesday night, you can see what I was talking about earlier with a lot of snow for the Midwest and a lot of rain for are area. There is a slight chance that the rain will change over to wintry mix on Wednesday afternoon as the rap around cold air from the low to our north spills into our area. I will try and update you as we get closer to Wednesday. At the end of the work week, due to the cold air spilling in, look for Thursday and Friday to be very chilly. Once again look for updates throughout the week.
