PM Update: Showery through Thursday

Rain showers today were a bit more prevalent than forecast. Nevertheless, temperatures were mild as advertised, reaching the upper 60s. We catch a break in the rain until late tonight before it resumes ahead of Thursday’s morning commute. Much of Thursday is mild but occasional showers continue.

Through Tonight: The slug of showers that drifted through the region this afternoon has moved off, leaving behind a dry evening commute. Late tonight, however, rain probably picks back up (70% chance). Clouds and winds from the south hold temperatures up overnight, with lows 50-55.

Thursday: The steadiest rain is likely in the morning with more showery conditions in the afternoon - with breaks in the rain certainly possible. It’s mild for one more day, with highs in the mid-60s Winds are from the southwest at 5-10 mph.
