A Gloomy Thursday

The remnants of Zeta, coupled with a trailing system to the west, will create very wet conditions across our section of the Commonwealth. Widespread rain from overnight and early this morning, will persist throughout the day.

Lows this morning are fairly mild, starting off in the low 60s, with rain present. Temperatures will only gradually moderate throughout the day to top out in the upper 60s.

** Rainfall totals should generally be between 1.5-2.5 inches. **

Drier, Chillier Friday

After the deluge of rainfall on Thursday, things dry out substantially on Friday, with decreasing cloud-cover, and even some filtered sun! Rain chances are slim to none, as the system responsible for our rain the previous day will have since moved eastward.

Lows Friday morning will me noticeably cooler, bottoming out in the lower 40s across W.A.B.B.L.E.S. Temperatures throughout the day will be significantly cooler as well, only topping out around 53-degrees in the afternoon.
