Tracking a band of showers and storms marching eastward this morning. This activity has formed along and behind a cold front that will bring fall temperatures back to the area.
The storms remain non-severe though a couple strong storms can't be ruled out. Primary threats with the strongest of the storms will be wind gusts to 40 mph, heavy rainfall and frequent lightning.
We haven't had rain in 2 weeks but that is changing this morning for most. The storms have already put down an estimated 1/2" to up to 1" locally. Expect a slow ride into work this morning as roadways will be wet and rain will limit visibility. Remember to put on your headlights even after the sun comes up if it's raining.
Temperatures are cooling off behind the front slowly.
The "BIG" chill is still a couple days away though.
TIMING THE RAIN:
This is a morning event and the rain tapers off by noon, skies clear and temperatures warm into the upper 60s and lower 70s.
Travel safe this morning!
