Discussion

The biggest rain event of the month so far is underway and will continue into early tomorrow. One low pressure system will ride along a frontal boundary zone today and then another wave of low pressure will follow along the front late tonight and early tomorrow. This second low will extend the threat for rain into early tomorrow before drier air moves in tomorrow afternoon from the Great Lakes region. Partial sunshine will return tomorrow afternoon, but it’ll be much colder than recent days with temperatures generally confined to the 40’s. The chill continues on Friday, but a warming trend will develop this weekend and highs near 65 degrees are quite likely by Sunday afternoon. Elsewhere, cold air is now plowing into the Pacific Northwest and heavy snow will break out there over the next couple of days and ultimately this heavy snow will work its way across the Rockies to the Northern Plains by the early part of the weekend.
