The main area of low pressure responsible for the heavy rains of the past 24 hours has moved to our east...but some scattered wrap-around precipitation will still be possible into your Wednesday evening. As high pressure slowly builds in later Wednesday night...skies will be turning partly cloudy and we will see some areas of fog. The aforementioned high pressure system will bring the region a pleasant Thursday...but another area of low pressure will be sliding across the state Thursday night and Friday bringing back a chance for additional precipitation. A series of low pressure waves will continue to march across the region over the next week...meaning additional rain-and-thunderstorm chances into the middle of next week. The forecast for the Monday Eclipse remains up-in-the-air at this time...with some rain chances Sunday into early Monday morning...and then again Monday night into Tuesday. Stay tuned for further updates as the actual date draws closer.
