Mild Days Before the Rain

High pressure will strengthen over the region briefly Wednesday before the next weather system begins its approach on Thursday. Winds will pick up and clouds will increase Thursday ahead of the system with rain arriving Friday morning. Rain is likely to remain light as the system will likely dissipate as it reaches our area. A second system looks stronger, however—and may be speeding up. Latest model runs are showing it arriving late Saturday and lasting into Sunday with mainly light to briefly moderate rain expected. Some changes to the forecast area likely as the event approaches, so stay tuned!
