Good Tuesday Night,

After record rainfall today, flooding will remain a concern overnight tonight into the morning hours tomorrow as much of our area has picked up 2-4″+ of rainfall over the past 48 hours. Along with that we had some strong to severe storms this evening around and after sunset. Any lingering rain will pass east overnight giving way to mostly cloudy skies and cooler air.

On the backside of this system the low will drive down some colder air for the remainder of the work week. Temps will struggle into the mid to upper 40s on Wednesday with scattered rain showers, and breezy conditions.

Thursday expect a light wet wintry mix in the morning, giving way to cold rain showers in the afternoon with highs only in the middle 40s. Rain showers will be possible early on Friday, with still a chilly day with highs only into the lower to middle 40s. We will start to dry out later Friday and set us up for a nice, but brisk start to the weekend.

Temps on Saturday will push back up near 50 with sunshine returning to our area. Expect more sunshine and warmer temps on Sunday with highs in the upper 50s. Unfortunately, it is appearing that more clouds will start to move in for Monday, but with temps in the lower 60s. For the Eclipse hours in the afternoon, it does appear at this point that we will at least have mixed clouds, and an isolated shower can't be ruled out later in the day as a warm front lifts north.

Tuesday will be a warmer day behind the front, with highs in the upper 60s to near 70.
