As we begin our transition into the late afternoon and early evening hours. Let's take one more look at what to expect tonight for rain and storm chances around the county.
Since my last update this morning the models have made some adjustments with the heating of the day. Based on current data we could see some showers and storms develop during the early evening hours. Here is my latest thinking,
I eluded last night in a post that we would see rain move into the county late tonight. At that time I also stated that we would see nothing like the folks in tornado alley are seeing. That still holds true today and I feel confident will remain that way over the next several days for us.
I know that seeing the severe weather in the Midwest right now can be a bit unnerving. I wanted to take a moment to let you know how this system will affect us by the time it arrives in Rowan County.
It has been a wet Friday to this point with isolated showers, some heavy at times falling around the county. As we head into the afternoon hours I wanted to give you an idea of what to expect through the rest of the day and into the early morning hours of tomorrow.
The latest model runs are trending toward a better chance for at least some accumulation of rainfall for tomorrow. Now keep in mind this is only one model run as most leading into this event have trended down showing not much opportunity for rain.
Our focus over the past 24 hours have been on the potential for rainfall tomorrow. As I stated in my last blog post even though I am forecasting a 60% chance of isolated showers and thunderstorms. There's not much to this system when it gets to our area.
As we close in on the weekend the discussion has been mainly about a chance for rain Friday. At this point I would not get to excited about any real measurable amount of rainfall. Chances currently stand at around 60% for an isolated shower or maybe even a thunderstorm.
I always love when the warmer months get here and for many reasons. Going outside to work and enjoy fresh air, playing outside with my daughter & of course the big reason better fuel mileage!
I hope you are enjoying this much cooler morning that compared to the temperatures over the past two days.
Weather today will be perfect if you like the 70's and mostly sunny skies.
Expect temperatures to tope out in the low 70's today around 74º
