Good Wednesday everyone. Given how dry things have been for the past few months… many of you may be tempted to run outside and do a little dance in the rain. If that’s what you plan to do… make sure to snap a pic and send it to me and I will show you off here on the blog.

Quite a few areas got in on some much needed rains Tuesday. This stuff wasn’t as widespread as many would like and the rains that fall today into tonight will try to get everybody in on the act before all is said and done. Since we are talking about showers and storms… totals will vary from place to place. The models continue to suggest the eastern areas will get in on the highest totals into Thursday…

For the first time in a long time… we give you the full array of radars to track the showers and storms…

The best time for showers and storms will be later this afternoon into the overnight hours as a front passes through here. This front will team up with low pressure cranking up to our south and east to give us out best chance at rain in a while. That low will head up the east coast toward New England later Thursday into Friday. This will usher in some windy and chilly weather that will last into the start of the weekend. Here is the European Model…

That is a pretty good shot of chill. Highs Thursday and Friday will likely range from the upper 50s and low 60s in the east to the middle 60s out west. There is still the threat for a weak system diving in here Friday and this can bring an increase in some clouds and a spotty shower… especially east.

Clearing skies will settle in for the weekend and this should set us up for a couple of mornings in the 30s meaning frost will be a distinct possibility Saturday and Sunday. Both days look spectacular in terms of the overall weather as sunny skies will be with us. Highs Saturday will be in the low and mid 60s with readings around 70 for Sunday.

Early next week will see temps return to the 70s for a couple of days before another cold front sweeps in late Tuesday into Wednesday. The models are hinting this may have some decent wet weather with it so keep your fingers crossed. Chilly air would likely try to invade the region again for the end of the week.

The longer range outlook remains the same as what I have been talking about for several days now as things continue to line up for a big change to cold toward the end of the month into early November.

That’s all I have for you right now… have a great Wednesday and happy rain dancing.

Take care.
