More Heavy Rain Wednesday – Thursday; Turning Cooler, Drier by Friday

Figure 1. Surface forecast for 6 PM Monday.

Rest of today: We will be dealing with scattered to numerous showers and storms again, with a lower chance for rain tonight. Temps will peak in the lower 70s this afternoon, and will only fall into the mid/upper 60s overnight.

New Year’s Eve (Tomorrow): Highs will continue to range in the lower 70s and lows in the 60s. With a new front approaching from the west, rain chances remain high. However, it won’t be a complete washout. The latest short-range, high resolution guidance does suggest the best chance for shower/storms will be during the evening, though. It also looks like the threat for any strong/severe storms will remain to our west.

New Year’s Day (Tuesday): The front is progged to stall in the region. This will keep wet, unsettled weather in place through the middle of the week. Daytime highs will once again be in the 70s, with 60s for nighttime lows.

Wednesday – Thursday: Another round of widespread heavy rain and thunderstorms is in store, with an area of low pressure set to track across the area Thursday.

QPF: Overall, an additional 1 – 3″ of rain appears likely through Thursday, with the bulk of that coming Wednesday into Thursday. Amounts generally less than 1″ are now expected for New Year’s Eve/Day.

Friday into the weekend: High pressure will build in the wake of the mid/late week storm system, allowing cooler and drier air to filter in.
