It’s probably not a good weather pattern for you to try to paint your house with the frequent shower chances coming up. Already some rain and thunderstorms had pushed into the News 9 area Tuesday afternoon and that will continue at times through Wednesday afternoon. Rain totals are expected to be mostly around .50 to .75 inch, but some localized amounts over 1 inch can’t be rule out. For the most part we are not anticipating severe weather. This is being caused by low pressure passing through the region. Temperatures will drop to the low 50s Tuesday night then hit the low 60s Wednesday afternoon. The showers will gradually taper off Wednesday afternoon with some clearing Wednesday night. Winds will be south to southeast around 5 mph Tuesday night then becoming north around 15 mph by midday Wednesday.
Thursday should be mainly dry, partly cloudy, and breezy. There is just a slight chance of a shower in the afternoon. Lows will be in the low 40s with highs around 69.
A new weather system will push in Friday and Saturday bringing quite a bit of cloud cover and increasing chances of scattered showers and thunderstorms. A few of the thunderstorms could get a bit stronger, especially Saturday. Highs will reach the low 70s Friday and mid 70s Saturday.
There is hope for dry weather Sunday with partly cloudy skies. Highs should reach the mid 70s. However a new weak disturbance will cross the area Monday causing isolated showers and storms. Otherwise it should be partly sunny with highs in the mid 70s again. Little change is projected for next Tuesday with a mix of sun and clouds along with highs in the mid 70s. We can’t rule out a stray shower late in the day.
At least a lot of the days in the extended forecast don’t look like washouts. There should be a good number of dry hours to give you a chance to be outdoors.
Have a nice evening! Meteorologist Tony Schumacher, 3:10 p.m., 11-June 2019
