A band of heavy rain continues to sink southward into the region. We will have to keep a close eye on this later this evening into tonight. The rest of the forecast remains unchanged with a major winter storm moving in late Wednesday and Thursday.
Our cold front inches closer and closer to us in the next several hours. This is sparking scattered showers for us today with the rain chance at 60%. 60% does not mean heavy amounts, but rather widespread chances today. Most of us can expect .1"-.5" of rain on our yards and gardens. Highs today settle in the mid 60s.
Once the front finally pushes through expect temperatures to fall. The next several days are looking chilly with highs in the upper 50s to lower 60s. That will take us all the way into next week. Our overnight lows settle in the upper 30s to lower 40s.
With the chilly air swinging in we could see our first frost of the year heading into the weekend. It's not likely, but rather possible. We will keep you "green thumbs" updated as we get closer in time.
