Areas of dense fog have developed across portions of the area as warm moist air moves into the area ahead of a front that will impact the forecast area late tonight into Tuesday. A few showers also have developed and are moving north through the area. This may be a trend for the day as occasional showers will be possible. High temperatures are expected to be rather warm in the mid-70s in many areas today. A cold front will approach the area early Tuesday morning and should fully pass Tuesday afternoon. Showers and a few thunderstorms will be possible. The severe threat has reduced from previous forecasts.
The Storm Prediction Center has removed the Marginal Risk for our area as the atmosphere looks less conducive for severe weather. That does not mean that we will not have any thunderstorms…but the likelihood of them being severe is greatly reduced. General rainfall amounts from this system are expected to range mostly between 1/3 and 2/3 of an inch, however cannot rule out some localized 1 to 2 inch amounts. Cooler drier conditions will follow the front through Wednesday night. This will be short lived as the next system will move through the area late Thursday into Friday. The weekend looks rain free at the moment.
