Still Grey & Wet

A new round of rain arrived later this afternoon and sticks around through tonight. Friday will be cooler with areas of light rain and drizzle. We’re stuck in the muck on Saturday, with perhaps more rain focused on Saturday night and into Sunday morning. At long last, we get a break in the gloom by early next week.

Forecast Discussion

An oscillating frontal boundary will be the cause for our gloomy weather over the next couple of days. A new wave of rainfall arrived late today and will linger into tonight.

On Friday, cool wedging reasserts itself and this remains locked in place on Saturday. Friday will feature some patchy drizzle and light rain. While Saturday features mainly dry weather, it will remain gray and cool. Another wave of rain will be possible Saturday night into Sunday morning.

The front exits promoting some needed clearing for early next week. We get a couple days off from the rain, then another powerful cold front approaches from the west by midweek. Expect more rain late Wednesday incoming from this noteworthy feature.
