Rain Begins today...Lasts for Days...

Low pressure will slowly drift toward the coast and then through our region through Saturday with several rounds of rain likely.

Throughout this morning rain will be scattered and by this afternoon we will see a much larger area of rain coverage across the area. The winds will also be noticeable today. Much like the past couple of days a gusty north wind. Be ready with the rain gear today and keep it in reach the next few days. With the clouds, the rain and a gusty winds temperatures will struggle to make it into the mid to upper 70s and overnight tonight lows will hover on either side of that 70 degree mark for all.

The heaviest of rain should be overnight Thursday into Friday and linger through the first half of the weekend will temperatures staying similar to what we will see today.

Rain will gradually start to taper off by late Saturday. Rainfall totals will reach 1 to 3 inches across much of the area with some localized amounts up to 4 inches possible.  In addition to the rain, gusty winds will keep the surf rough with a higher threat of rip currents and perhaps even some minor beach erosion possible.
