We’ve reached without question the ugliest, nastiest day of the week today as a large storm system from the southwest moves into the region, bringing soggy, windy, chilly weather for our Wednesday. Expect periods of heavy rainfall through the afternoon with an inch of rainfall possible in that span of time, leading to one to one and a half inch totals by tonight. Overall, up to two inches of rain will be possible across the area from this storm system through today and Thursday.
Lighter rain will continue after sunset through the night and Thursday morning as the storm system pushes northeastward into the Great Lakes. The rain will taper off by early Thursday afternoon while gusty northwest winds will keep an extra chill in the air as high temperatures will only be in the upper 40s.
High pressure will move in for Friday, bringing mostly sunny weather and temperatures will respond favorably with high temperatures reaching the lower 60s in the afternoon.
The weekend looks mostly pleasant with just a few hours of rain possible. Look for late day showers Saturday and perhaps a brief, isolated shower or two Sunday for Mother’s Day and high temperatures will be in the low to mid 60s.
