February 7: Rain, Rain, and More Rain


It’s an alliterative day — warm, windy and wet Wednesday weather.
Spotty showers will be possible at ANY point during the day, but the most-widespread and heaviest rain will move in this afternoon. Here’s the HRRR model’s radar simulation through this evening:
I’m not concerned about any severe weather potential today, and we shouldn’t see any flooding issues either. Temperatures will be unseasonably warm before the heaviest rain arrives:
Gusty winds from the southwest will try to move you around a bit on the road, so keep both hands on the wheel!
We’ll clear out overnight — tomorrow morning’s temperatures will depend on the extent of that clearing. I’m thinking we’ll be mostly cloud-free before the sun comes up, which means temperatures will tumble down into the 30s in most locations:
Plenty of sunshine on Thursday, but temperatures will be a touch on the cool side:
We’ll warm up on Friday after a chilly start, with the next chance of rain headed our way Friday night…and the rainy weather will make itself right at home over the weekend:
I’m cautiously optimistic that we’ll be able to salvage a few dry hours on Saturday, but it’s just a bit too far in the future to be confident about that…or to pin down which hours will be dry. Sunday is just looking WET — we’ll keep you updated on the specific rain chances as we get closer to the weekend.
