November Rain....cool rock ballad by Guns-n-Roses and also today's weather. Showers, drizzle, mist & even an occasional downpour at times. The steadier showers fall from 9:30 until 2pm with most towns picking up between .10-.50" of rain. The storm drains will be able to handle that amount of rain by itself unless that drain happens to be clogged with leaves....could be some large puddles on some of the roads midday today. The other component of this storm is the wind. That's with us the entire day and will be fiesty as most towns see wind gusts between 35-45mph and that will likely lead to some small branches snapping/breaking. The good news with this wind is that it's a warm wind so even though it's a November Rain, those temps will reach the low 70s with ease---more like early May.
This storm quickly sweeps through here tonight taking the strongest wind & shower threat with it but will leave behind clouds & mild temps. This mild air will hang with us for Saturday as well so that Rolling Rally slated for tomorrow will be mild with temps in the low 60s under a mostly cloudy sky--much nicer than the 2004 Rolling Rally (That year it was 45 with a driving rainstorm). Sunday will be colder with daytime temps only in the upper 40s. Also on Sunday is a return to early sunsets....sunset on Sunday is 4:35.
Have a great weekend!
