WHAT WE’RE TRACKING
1-3″ of Rain from Monday through Tuesday night
Unseasonably Warm with Temperatures in the 50s, low 60s from Monday Evening to Tuesday Evening.
TODAY FLOOD WATCH from this afternoon through Wednesday afternoon for 1-3″ of rain and the possibility of local flooding. Showers will develop from south to north across the area. There is a chance of an isolated thundershower. Temperatures will rise through the 40s during the afternoon and peak in the low-mid 50s in the evening (could be close to 60 by evening at the Indiana border). Winds will be south-southeast at 10-15 mph.
TONIGHT It will be as warm as a February night can be with temperatures holding in the 50s. Occasional showers and embedded thunderstorms will move through along with reduced visibility due to fog. Wind will be from the south 5-15 mph.
TUESDAY Showers and isolated thundershowers (heavy at times) will continue with near record high temperatures approaching 60 in Grand Rapids and likely into the 60s to the south.
WEDNESDAY The last of the precipitation with this event will be winding down early Wednesday morning with a light mix possible. Temperatures will be cooler Wednesday as temperatures drop through the 30s. I expect at least a little sunshine to work its way in to help dry a very wet ground out.
THURSDAY Any sunshine Thursday morning will give way to more clouds during the afternoon. Skies should be partly sunny with highs in the upper 30s.
LOOKING AHEAD Friday there is a chance of a light shower…but emphasize “light” – likely less than 1/10th inch. There is a little better chance of some rain over the weekend…less than 1/2″. High temperatures will remain in the low-mid 40s, about 10 degrees warmer than average for this time of year.
