Storms Return and a Rainy Weekend
However, every county tomorrow will have to experience the larger event, as we'll have thunderstorms move through our area during the day on Wednesday. We are under a Marginal Risk for severe weather, with the thunderstorms expected to produce heavy rainfall and gusty winds at around 50 mph. The storms will be moving in from the west, so our western counties will be seeing them first in the later hours of the morning. They're expected to arrive between 10-11am. Our middle and eastern counties will see the storms during the afternoon. This is because the cold front associated with the low pressure system will gradually move through the stateline during the entire day. This means that when the storms form in the middle and eastern counties, that the storms in our western counties will have moved out. All the storms will move out of the stateline by the evening, but with all the moisture that'll be left over in the atmosphere, we could see some light rain linger with us into the overnight.
After the stormy day tomorrow we cool down into the mid 50°s for the rest of the week, with some drizzle expected Friday evening. Another low moves in for the weekend and will bring over four-tenths of an inch of rain for the entire weekend, but our temperatures will also start warming up back into the 60°s for the end of the weekend. A little bit of rain lingers into Monday, but sunny skies return next Tuesday.
