The WTVA Severe Weather Authority has a summary of what you can expect in the coming days.

Mostly cloudy with scattered light showers Tuesday

Light showers gradually move into our western counties early Tuesday morning, spreading east as we approach the midday hours. Most of these will be focused across the central and southern parts of our area, especially along the US Highway 82 corridor. In areas across the north, many will stay dry with partly sunny skies. We start out chilly, mostly in the upper 30s to lower 40s. By midday, those temperatures struggle to warm much. Most will have only reached the mid and upper 40s with the coolest areas where rain is found. 

Light showers will be off-and-on throughout the afternoon and evening in these same areas across the US Highway 82 corridor and south. Meanwhile, in areas where we are dry and partly cloudy across the north, temperatures are able to warm up a bit more. We should see numbers range from the upper 40s in areas where rain falls to the lower 50s in areas where we remain dry. Overnight, we will see some clearing across the north while showers across the south gradually taper off into Wednesday morning. Temperatures slip into the mid and upper 30s to nearly 40. 

During the day Wednesday, we should remain dry. But the clouds remain in most areas. This will be a very brief break in the rainfall and temperatures struggle to warm much. Highs only reach the lower 50s. Then as showers increase again Thursday, temperatures do not fall as much into the morning. Lows will be around the mid-40s. Then by the afternoon, expect more scattered light to moderate showers with highs in the upper 50s. Friday will bring continued rainfall, perhaps slightly heavier at times. But this will be a colder rain with highs in the upper 40s to lower 50s. Total rainfall between now and the end of the work week should range from a half inch to about 2 inches. 

Saturday should bring another brief break in the rainfall with some colder morning temperatures, especially if we can clear out the cloud coverage. Lows should be in the lower 30s. In the afternoon, highs reach the lower and mid-50s with partly sunny skies.

Then into Sunday, light rain will gradually build back across the area. This will come with a warming trend as morning lows only dip into the lower 40s. In the afternoon, despite light showers becoming widespread, highs reach the mid-50s. Then we continue to warm up as heavier rainfall builds into Monday morning. We should start out the day just as warm as we were Saturday afternoon. Then by Sunday afternoon, scattered thunderstorms will come as highs reach the mid-60s. Rainfall amounts could range from 1 to 4 inches in this batch, perhaps bringing a risk for flash flooding.
