Last night’s soggy round of weather left behind another half an inch to inch of rainfall in area rain gauges. It’s been a wet start to March with additional waves of rain through the weekend.

We’ll go into tonight with cloudy skies with patchy misty showers. The risk for heavier showers will pick up after midnight, especially south of the state line.

Showers will continue on and off throughout the day Thursday with temperatures slowly climbing into the 50s.

We’ll end the week with some sunshine and drier weather, but the break from wet weather will be short-lived.

Another wave of rain and clouds will move through this weekend. Saturday will start dry, but it looks like rain will move in by noon, continuing overnight. Showers will be on the way out by Sunday morning, but the day will remain cloudy and chilly with some patchy misty showers remaining possible.

Weekend rain totals will likely exceed half an inch with some areas picking up over an inch of rainfall, pushing monthly totals over 3″, a month’s worth of rain in under two weeks.

Drier weather and sunshine return early next week with the pattern remaining a little cooler than normal. Another wave of showers may move through around the middle of next week.
