Early morning showers are pushing steadily through the state this morning; featuring a few embedded thunderstorms in the mix of the rain. The solid line of showers is tracking to the east between 10-15mph; with a few lightning strikes along the way. Clouds will stay persist ant during the day, keeping it cooler, so highs will only reach into the upper 60s. And the winds will be from the north at 10-15 mph.
Tonight the thick cloud cover should begin to thin out a bit, dropping our chances of rain from the daytime chances of 40% to nearly nothing. Mainly clear skies overnight will allow the temps to drop to a very chilly mid 40s range of temps. We won't set any record lows, but we'll get close - so crank up the heat. Winds will be relatively light.
Tomorrow the sunshine will break the chill (and dare I say frost) in the early morning hours. We'll rebound during the afternoon hours, and push back into the 70s. We'll warm to the norm for this time of the year over the next few days in a row. But for now we stay a bit cooler than usual, winds shifting out of the south.
