Following a very nice stretch of weather heading into Thanksgiving, it seems that we are getting a little pay back now.
Light rain started arriving late yesterday, but remained light and rather spotty with mild temps. However, the arrival of a sharp cold front helped to increase intensity of the rainfall today with most areas picking up 3/4" to an inch of the wet stuff.
At last check, rain remained widespread across the area tonight and it looks like the dreary conditions will stick around for the balance of the weekend.
Although the rain shouldn't be as widespread or as heavy as what we saw today, Sunday is shaping up to be a pretty nasty day with overcast skies, light rain and temps that will struggle to improve, remaining in the 40's for a high.
Unfortunately, the cold front that slid into the area today looks to get hung up across the region leading to more soggy conditions as we head into the workweek.
Eventually, a large, slow moving, upper low pressure system located over the Rockies will kick to the east shutting down our rain as we head into the middle of the week.
Between now and then however, things look to remain quite wet with rain chances remaining high through Tuesday morning.
For the most part, the rain will be light with the possible exception of Tuesday morning.
Sunshine looks to filter back into the area by Wednesday and Thursday with seasonably cool temps.
