Heavy local showers brought about 2 inches of rain to southern portions of the ABC12 viewing area during the wee hours of our Tuesday. The lighter and more persistent showers ended and we finally enjoyed the sun during the afternoon. With prevailing northwesterly winds for the day, high temperatures only managed to hover around the 70 degree mark. Overnight we will see plenty of starlight and early Wednesday morning lows will dip into the 40s.
Bright sunshine early Wednesday morning will give temperatures a good start. The trend for the day, however, will be an increase in clouds. Today’s highs will only manage to battle near the 70 degree mark in light and variable winds. Our “normal” high temperature now reaches 76 degrees. Some rain will move into the state from the west during the afternoon. So while the day will start out dry, it will end on a wet note.
Thursday and Friday seem relatively calm and comfortable. High temperatures to end the work week will be in the lower to mid 70s. Every day will be at least partly sunny and the winds will remain fairly light. A few isolated showers will occur Thursday afternoon, but most of us will stay dry. Likewise, Friday may see a few splashes developing here and there, but they shouldn’t be a big deal at all. On ABC12 News, we’ll be timing a few more showers en route for the weekend. -JR
