Tuesday's forecast for scattered showers and thunderstorms verified well. Rainfall totals over the last 24-hours depict measurable precipitation for 30-40% of the viewing area. The issued rain chance on Tuesday Morning was 40%-- indicating that we were expecting about 40% of the viewing area to find measurable rainfall. For much more on PoPs and rain chances, click here.
Like Tuesday, showers and thunderstorms will develop in the afternoon and affect about half of our viewing area through early evening. The scattered action could produce some locally heavy downpours and frequent lightning, but no storms will be severe, nor should they be long-lasting. Prior to the showers, skies will be partly sunny with thermometers approaching the low 90s.
The nighttime hours will lead to a quick drop-off in precipitation we'll feel a muggy low near 72°.
