Rowan weather: Rain today, stormy tomorrow

Today is starting off 11 degrees cooler than yesterday, 47 degrees, and we have drizzle, along with northeast winds around 9 mph. Bleh.

Don’t expect much today — we’ll reach a high of just 53, and rain or drizzle is likely this morning, then rain after noon. The chance is 100 percent. Winds will continue between 9 and 11 mph. We’ll get between a quarter and a half inch of rain.

Tonight will include more rain and fog, with the low nearly the same as the high, 52. Winds will pickup from the east northeast, 9-13 mph, with gusts up to 18 mph. Another 100 percent chance of rain, with a half to three-quarters of an inch  possible.

Wednesday will be kind of wacky, with a warm high of 72, a 90 percent chance of rain, then thunderstorms in the afternoon. Winds will be from the south at around 10 mph. Another quarter to half inch of rain is possible. The showers and storms carry over into Wednesday night, with a low of 56 and the wind again shifting, this time to the southwest at 5-7 mph.

Thursday will be a warm day with mostly sunny skies and a high of 72. West southwest winds will blow at 5-10 mph. Thursday night’s low will be 43.

Cooler Friday, with a high of 64 under sunny skies. Friday’s low will be around 40.

Saturday will be mostly sunny and 65, with a low of 49.

Then on Sunday, a 30 percent chance of showers is predicted, with mostly cloudy skies and a high of 67. The same rain chance stays around Sunday night, with a low of 53.

Monday also has a 30 percent chance of showers, but it will be partly sunny and 70.
