A large cluster of moderate to heavy rain showers resides over the area as a cold front moves through. Some areas have already received an estimated half an inch or more over the last 24 hours.
Unfortunately, there is an above average amount of moisture in the air that will allow the rain to keep falling for most of today. The problem is that showers and storms keep developing over the same spot and allow the rain to keep falling over the same spots, or training, which adds up quickly, even if the rain lightens up a bit. The heaviest rain should persist through the early afternoon with a secondary cluster of showers developing this afternoon for a smaller portion of the area.
Therefore a flash flood watch remains in effect to the south and east for areas that have already seen a very wet September. Remember if you encounter a flooded roadway, Turn Around, Don’t Drown!
With a cold front moving through winds will become northwesterly, although not super breezy.
This means that temperatures will generally drop through today with maybe some leveling in the mid to upper 60’s this afternoon.
Humidity will drop throughout today as well, stay nice for Monday, then rebound some for Tuesday.
Showers and storms will end this evening with decreasing clouds to follow. That means that a cool night is on the way with lows around 51.
The first day of fall is on Monday and goodness will it be beautiful with highs around 75 and mostly sunny skies.
Some slightly warmer air moves in Tuesday thanks to a breezy southwest wind. Skies will remain partly cloudy but storms look to return for Tuesday night, some of which may be strong to severe.
The rest of the forecast will be like a yo-yo with temperatures bouncing up and down throughout the 70’s. Another chance for storms arrives on Friday.
