Happy Thursday!

I know the saying goes “April showers bring May flowers” but I think we can look on the bright side and say “spring showers will bring May flowers.” It has been a rainy start to the month of March and we will continue right along with this rainy trend. About 1/3 of the way through the month and we have already seen 2.94″ of rain.

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.
