Wow!! We got some rain back in the Tri-State!! It’s been a nice relief, especially for our yards and farmers.
I know it was probably a challenging commute for most of us this morning as heavy rainfall came down across the Tri-State. The great thing about the much needed rain is it not only added some relief to our grounds, but our dropped the sweltering temperatures.
The majority of the widespread rainfall is over for today. There are some signs we could see some breaks of sunshine later this afternoon, but it will stay mostly cloudy. Highs are going to reach the mid to upper 70s. Don’t be surprised if you run into an isolated shower late afternoon, but they will mainly be pop-up storms.
Dry skies will be in store for our evening into Thursday morning with temperatures in the low to mid 60s. Thursday afternoon is expected to stay dry with highs in the mid to upper 80s, but we’re not done with the active weather.
Thursday night into Friday morning could be lighting up the radar with some strong storms. The Storm Prediction Center continues to keep the eastern half under a “1” on the scale for severe weather, while the western portion is under a Slight Risk “2”. The main threats are gusty winds, heavy rainfall, hail, and an isolated tornado can’t be ruled out. The main time frame for severe weather: Thursday from 9:00 p.m. – 6:00 a.m. Friday.
