Strong southern winds will draw that moisture in throughout the day as a cold front approaches the area.  Wind gusts as high as 20 mph by lunchtime. The temperature will increase into the high-50s, possibly 60°.  As the sun goes down, the temperature will drop into the high-30s. Rain will continue throughout the night, as well.

Thursday-Saturday… you guessed it, more rain!

Even more rain starting on Thursday. The amount of rain we are forecasted for is concerning for our area, considering the amount of rain we have already received. If any of you all live near a body of water, please watch and prepare for the rising levels for this week.
