Early Warning Weather

Stretch of rainy weather headed our way

Posted: Updated:

After a few days of sunshine, we’re in the beginning of a stretch of rainy weather.

The rain started falling in the state on Sunday afternoon, and Meteorologist Mike Cameron said there will continue to be scattered rain showers Sunday evening.

“The most recent model runs are saying 0.5"-1.25" of rain may fall this afternoon and overnight,” Cameron said.

Track the rain with the Early Warning Pinpoint Doppler here.

Most of the showers pass before midnight, and taper off by Monday morning.

There will be periods of steady rain Monday through Wednesday.

Monday will be cloudy with showers and/or drizzle throughout the day.

"The forecast highs for Monday are dependent on high pressure to our northeast that will send a cooler east and northeasterly wind from the Atlantic.  Highs will only be in the middle-60s; lows will fall into the mid-50s," Cameron said.

The wet weather continues for Tuesday and Wednesday, and highs will be in the 60s both days.

“When all is told, we may get an inch or more of rain from this storm,” Cameron said.

Some showers are possible for Thursday, but there will be breaks of sun.

Temperatures will be in the 70s on Thursday.

Warmer weather moves in for Friday and Saturday. There could be some afternoon showers those days as well.
