  • Tracking rain to continue overnight
  • Shower chances are lower, but not zero for Friday
  • Low-end rain chances stick around into the weekend

THURSDAY

Showers will continue to touch down throughout the rest of this evening lingering into the overnight hours. Be careful for poor visibility as patchy, dense fog looks likely to form.

Patchy, dense fog will develop tonight and into early Friday morning.

Overnight lows will be in the upper 30s and low 40s.

FRIDAY

A disturbance over the Central Plains will travel into the Appalachians and and cross the region throughout the day on Friday. Right now, forecast models are trending drier for our hometowns. Although we still can’t rule out isolated to scattered showers, it appears many hometowns may stay dry through Friday with cloudy skies. High temperatures will only top out in the 40s.

Thinking of heading to Dickens of a Christmas? We could see isolated showers around parade time, so we recommend the rain gear just in case. Shower activity will be light overall.

SOMEWHAT DRIER WEEKEND

It appears we’ll get a brief period of drier weather just in time for the weekend. Saturday will likely remain mostly cloudy with stray shower chances. Parades and holiday parties should be mostly dry. For Sunday it looks like spotty rain will be with us. High temperatures throughout the weekend will read in the 40s and low 50s. Overnight lows will drip in the 30s.

NEXT WEEK

Past the weekend, looks like we will start off our work week dry with partly sunny skies. Models differ in the outcome as we head into Wednesday. We’re trending on the active side with many models showing a powerful cold front moving across the country arriving here mid-to-late week.

This will bring a return of showers along with a major cool down coming and lasting into the weekend. We’ll know more as we get closer.
