Raining on Sunday

February 25, 2018

The sun is out as of the time of this blog post. However, things will change as we move through the morning hours. We will see rain showers start to move into the county between 10 & 11am this morning. 


From that point on rain will continue around the county throughout the day. We could see isolated chances as we get into the afternoon hours. With the rain in place during the biggest portion of the daytime hours we will not see temperatures as high as we have been. We will still make it into the 70's with a high of 71º



Winds will become gusty at times as we move through the day. We will see some gust between 20 & 25 miles per hour.



As we begin to wrap up your Sunday we will see lows drop down to around 54º



As far as rainfall accumulation we could see around a quarter of an inch by the time we wrap the day here in Rowan County.



I will provide updates right here and on social media throughout the day and evening. As always thank you foe following Rowan County Weather!
