PM Update: Clouds, showers, breezes ease tonight; continued cool Monday

There may still be a quick shower, cloudy this afternoon. We should clear the sky and chance of rain before sunset. Temperatures on Monday (and perhaps the whole week) continue to be slightly below average. Saturday’s rain is welcome, but we don’t see enough on the horizon to quell our drought.

Monday tomorrow): Mornings can be the sunniest times of the day, before a few clouds filter through in the afternoon and afternoon — more cloud cover than previous weather data. However, the chance of sprinkles or showers is still very low, at around 5 percent.

With potential clouds, high temperatures can get stuck in the mid-50s to around 60 degrees. If sunshine prevails again, lows to the mid-60s are possible.

West-northwesterly winds can blow at nearly 20 mph in the afternoon but subside overnight as low temperatures bottom out between the ages of 30 and under.

Rain shortage reduced a bit, but not much

On Saturday, the area received from a tenth of an inch to more than an inch and a half. That’s great news in the short term.

It mitigates our rainfall deficit at several points, particularly along and east of I-95. However, the rain wasn’t nearly enough to wipe it away — some spots were still 6 inches below the levels they’ve typically received since January 1.

The drought, the culmination of this prolonged lack of rain, remains unabated. If so, we could have just one week without exacerbating “moderate drought” across the region.
