Good morning, folks, and happy Monday!
All good things must come to an end, and the showers and thunderstorms this morning ended our streak of beautiful weather over the past week. As this rain moves out of the area this afternoon, much cooler air will usher in behind it. Temperatures in the 60s this morning will crash into the mid 40s by this evening as that cool air moves in, while clouds linger. For tonight, clouds remain with temperatures falling into the mid-to-lower 30s.
What to Watch For
Today’s weather does a sufficient job at summarizing the forecast for the rest of the week. Additional rain chances are in the forecast for Tuesday night into Wednesday, and for your Friday and Friday night. The precipitation chance into Friday night even has the potential to end as some winter weather, so stay tuned for that forecast as it develops.
On this day, in 1717, “The Great Snow” fell across the Eastern United States. This event was comprised of four winter storms that impacted the region over a nine-day period. Snow depths averaged five feet following the event! There were even snow drifts as high as 25 feet reported around Dorchester, MS. (NWS)
Stay tuned, stay dry, and have a great week everyone 🙂
