More warm weather with lots of rain to come

Tonight: We will see rain in the overnight hours and continue into daybreak, where it could be heavy at times. Patchy fog is also possible in the morning as well. Our temperatures will fall to 37° for the low.

7-Day Forecast: A ***FLOOD WATCH*** will go into effect from 7 PM Wednesday and through late Thursday night due to the amount of rain we are expected to get for Wednesday and Thursday. One to three inches of rain is likely, so be sure to get the rain gear ready. Always remember, turn around, don’t drown when encountering flooded roadways. We will also continue to warm up on Thursday with temperatures looking to top out in the low 60’s along with stronger winds of 20-30 mph. However, a strong cold front will move through late Thursday, and this will give us a windy and cold Friday. Temperatures will slowly warm up into the upper 30’s by next Monday with chances for a rain/snow mix in the beginning of the new work week next week.
