Reported by: Chief Meteorologist Joe Murgo
The wet pattern continued today as a slow moving storm system in the middle of the nation continues to shift very slowly to the east. This storm is trying to bring very humid air from the southern states, but the chilly air in place over our area held in place forcing that humid air upward and enhancing rainfall. Tonight and Wednesday will remain damp and breezy with rain at varying rates. Some of the rainfall will be heavy, but at other times the rain will be closer to some drizzle. It will remain breezy along with areas of fog. Temperatures tonight through Wednesday will slowly rise, reaching to near 60 by the end of the day. There could even be a thunderstorm in spots Wednesday, especially weather of I-99. This slow moving storm will move a front through the area on Thursday switching our wind to a more westerly direction. While there will be more in the way of peeks of sunshine, it will remain unsettled with scattered showers and thunderstorms. This upper level storm system will slowly swing through the area Friday through Sunday. Each day will bring times of clouds and sunshine along with the chance for showers and thunderstorms. It will be a bit cool each day with highs in the 50s to near 60. Eventually this system will lift out and help to bring drier weather as we head into next week.
