Published 8:03 am Monday, November 9, 2015

It’s another chilly, rainy Monday, a followup to a rainy, cloudy weekend. We’re starting out at 44 degrees.

Today’s chance of rain is 100 percent, and may be accompanied by patchy fog. The high will be just 48, and a wind from the northeast at 9-11 mph, with gusts up to 18 mph, is going to make it feel even colder. The wind chill at 8 a.m. is making it feel like it’s 39 degrees.

At  least an inch of rain is expected, and up to 2 inches in some areas, leading to street flooding, overflowing creeks and soggy ground. The wet ground, combined with the wind, could take trees down.

Tonight, the chance of rain is 90 percent, with more fog and a low only 1 degree lower than the high, 47 degrees. The north northeast wind will continue at 5-7 mph, but slack off towards morning.

Tuesday has a 40 percent chance of showers, mainly before 9 a.m. It will be cloudy, then gradually clear, leading to a high of 65. Wind will be from the west northwest at 3-7 mph. Tuesday night will be clear and chilly, with a low of 42.

Wednesday is Veterans Day, when children will be out of school and some people will have a day off. It should be mostly sunny, with a high of 68. A 20 percent chance of rain moves in Wednesday night, with a low around 50.

The chance of rain goes up to 40 percent for Thursday, but it will be partly sunny and 65. Thursday night should be partly cloudy and 42.

Friday might actually be a sunny, cool day, with a high of 61. The low that night will drop to 33 degrees.

Saturday looks sunny and cooler, with a high of 53 and another low of 33.

And Sunday should be sunny, too, with a high of 57.

For now, try to hold on to your umbrella and get some rain boots.
