Good morning, it is Wednesday, March 28.

First Alert Forecast

We’ll have more rain today. The weather will be drier to the north and west and wetter in the south and east.

Laura Wibbenmeyer says we could get a break in the rain in the late morning, but we’ll get another round of showers this afternoon and tonight. Some places have gotten an inch of rain already.

That’s on track for the 1-to-3 inch projection. Temps will top out in the 50s.

Thursday also looks wet. We have a flood watch that lasts until then. Friday looks to be the only day this work week where we will have mostly dry weather and see some sunshine.

There will be dry time over the weekend, but there will also be periods of scattered showers.

The highs on Saturday could be in the 60s, but Sunday looks much cooler with high temperatures only topping out in the 40s.
