2:15pm radar shows some scattered showers to our north, moving NE. Rain odds will be on the increase later today and into the evening.

Forecast discussion…

A low pressure and trough to our NW will continue slowly moving east over the next 4 days, increasing our rain odds starting this afternoon and evening. Look for a mostly cloudy skies with very good chances for rain through Monday along with cooler temps as a cold front pushes through tomorrow. The low will be almost stationary through Monday, then will drift slowly east, so look for a continued chance for scattered afternoon showers and thunderstorms through Wednesday.

A trough and low are located to our NW this afternoon, spinning clouds, showers and thunderstorms counterclockwise around the low. This low will move ever so slightly east over the next few days, increasing our rain odds through Wednesday.

The latest Euro model shows low pressure moving only slightly east through Monday…it will still be giving us decent odds for rain through Wednesday of next week.
