Soaking Rain Arrives….Cooling Down

A HUGE SHOUT OUT to Judy Bell and the fine folks at the Sauk Valley Sun for inviting us to be a part of their monthly publication. Our first installment was published for the November edition which went into circulation last week. We are greatly looking forward to the next several months as we grow our partnership together. Stay tuned!

Here comes the rain! Leftover moisture from the former Hurricane Patricia will be moving northward into the area today along with an upper level disturbance to bring a good soaking rainfall for not only today but much of the overnight hours.

The rain should begin by the time we reach the noon hour with heavier pockets expected by the middle of the afternoon continuing into the evening hours. Much of the area should pick up at least a half inch to perhaps even three quarters of an inch as you get closer to the Mississippi. Highs today will be much cooler with all the clouds and rain around, topping out in the lower to middle 50s.

Wednesday the system departs off to the east and in its wake very windy conditions will develop with gusts approaching 30 MPH as colder air funnels into the region. On Thursday we'll bring back some sunshine but much cooler temperatures will be found behind this system as our highs will only reach the lower 50s.

The next system to impact the area arrives late Friday and then right through Halloween bringing another decent shot for some rain. At this time I would plan on pairing the umbrella with any costume you take out for Saturday evening as chances are some rain will still be found around the area with temperatures continuing to hold in the 50s.

Have a great Tuesday!
