Soggy Weather Still Going

Chief Meteorologist Justin Stapleton‘s Daily Forecast Discussion:   Steady rain at times with a warm front bringing the next wave of rain across the region tonight.

Storms Keep Rolling In

Light Showers Later Tonight

Chief Meteorologist Justin Stapleton‘s Daily Forecast Discussion:   The first rain chances of the week are starting to move into the picture tonight as a warm front brings some light showers overnight.

Cooler, April Showers Back This Week

Chief Meteorologist Justin Stapleton‘s Daily Forecast Discussion:   Big night tonight for astronomy buffs as a full lunar eclipse will be on display tonight with the partial starting at 10:58p and the full eclipse at its max around 12:46am.

Staying Sunny This Weekend

Chief Meteorologist Justin Stapleton‘s Daily Forecast Discussion:   Another great finish to the week that has been super sunny overall, with clear skies on the table for tonight.
