Rain to end this afternoon, sun expected through Friday

Keep those windshield wipers on — this rain is going to stick around for a few more hours.

The weather service issued a warning that widespread rain this morning could lead to some urban flooding, though rivers should be okay.

“There might be some poor drainage flooding on roadways, but as far as rivers, they should stay in their banks,” Dunham said.

Rain should peter out after noon today, with high temperatures climbing to 61 degrees. Partly cloudy skies should continue into the evening. Low temperatures will sink into the lower 40s overnight.

Sunny and dry conditions will return Wednesday, with highs at 53 degrees. Skies will remain clear in the evening as temperatures drop into the mid-30s.

Thursday will see more sun, though high temperatures will climb up to 62 degrees. Some clouds should arrive in the afternoon as temperatures sink down to 45 degrees.

The week will end on a wet note, with scattered rain showers expected to fall Friday night.

“It’s too early to tell, but it should be mostly Friday night with maybe a little bit of lingering rain Saturday,” Dunham said. Skies will be mostly cloudy throughout the day, with high temperatures near 62 degrees dropping into the lower 40s overnight.
