We started out on the mild side for our Wednesday. It was a light jacket type of morning if you ask me.�� Most communities woke up to temperatures in the 50s under partly sunny skies.
Enjoy your Wednesday because this could be the last of the dry weather for the extended forecast. Conditions will bring highs to the upper 60s and lower 70s under cloudy skies. Thanks to the strong southerly flow, temperatures aren't taking a hit from the clouds today. However, these conditions will bring gusty winds. Some of our far northern communities are under a Wind Advisory until 12 a.m. Thursday. The warmth won’t leave us as fast as the dry conditions. Overnight conditions will only dip into the upper 50s with cloudy skies.
Now to the active weather in our extended forecast! Keep those umbrellas close by for the remainder of the week. We're tracking scattered to widespread rainfall tomorrow through the weekend. A low pressure system off to our west will continuously march toward the Tri-State. Rain chances can be expected as early as Thursday morning. Scattered showers will cover the Tri-State through tomorrow. Heavier rainfall will pick up heading into tomorrow night. We're going to have to get used to this because the wet weather will be hanging around for the next five days.
