Heavy Rain And Wind Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature cloudy skies with periods of moderate to heavy rain as a storm system intensifies just to our south and east. Rain and mountain snow is already underway this morning and will continue right on through the afternoon hours as the developing storm continues to throw moisture in our direction. Rainfall totals will range from 1-2″ with some localized 2.5″ amounts along the coast where the heaviest bands from the offshore storm will be hanging out. Winds will also become gusty out of the ENE with gusts to 40mph possible along the coast. Wind advisories are out for the midcoast due to gusts there of near 50mph. Up in the mountains, snow is ongoing this morning especially at high elevations. Accumulations of 4-8″ are expected at the higher elevations while the valley floors will likely only see 2-4″. Farther south across the higher foothills, coatings are possible with rain south of that. Heavy rain tapers to showers this evening before dry conditions return for tonight. Highs today will range from the low to mid 30’s north to the low 50’s along the coast.
