Cam’s Weather Vlog for 05/02/13May 2nd, 2013 at 12:02 pm by cameronhopman under Chad's WLFI Weather Blog
Considering how beautiful the last few days were, it pains me to talk about any rain in the forecast, let alone six straight days with rain chances. A low pressure system that will stall out over parts of the Midwest and Great Plains in coming days will supply the viewing area with yet another long term period of rain. The first dose will arrive later today as scattered showers and thunderstorms begin to pop up after 3:00 pm. Our rain chances will remain scattered and isolated until Saturday, that’s when the cold front will finally begin to traverse the viewing area. The passage of that front this weekend will drop temperatures below average for the first time since this past Sunday bearing in mind that we’ll hit 79° and 73° for Thursday and Friday respectively. Sustained rainfall and highs in the low 60s will make for a gloomy and damp Saturday and Sunday. We may still see some wrap around precipitation even after the low passes to our east. Expect scattered showers and thunderstorms on Monday and a slight chance of lingering showers come Tuesday. However, there is light at the end of the tunnel. Current trends have the rain finally exiting the region by next Wednesday; we’re looking at afternoon highs back in the 70s with mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies!
