Expect rain and some thunderstorms, moving from west to east across the area from predawn Tuesday through the afternoon.
Rain coverage will be 90% or more. After the initial line of downpours, most of the rain that falls during the day should be moderate with totals by the end of the day between an inch and two inches. Rain will taper in the afternoon but there may still be lingering showers for the evening’s parade.
At the moment, this does not look like a situation where we would see much, if any severe weather but there may be local street flooding, especially in the spots where it is common. Keep your headlights on when you are driving in the rain in the daytime so you can be seen more easily by other drivers.
Lows tonight will be mild- We’ll stay in the lower 60s. Highs tomorrow reach 70.
Wednesday gives a mix of clouds, sun, and a few showers over a third of the area. Highs on Wednesday reach the lower 70s.
Thursday through the weekend is looking like a good, long stretch of dry weather. Highs on Thursday and Friday will be in the middle 70s. For Saturday and Sunday, highs will be in the upper 60s to 70.
