Egan short range nov 7-9

Forecast updated 10:00am EST - 7 Nov 2011

After a mild weekend, clouds and the chance for rain return today through Wednesday. A boundary is currently sitting over us, responsible for light scattered showers that we will see through the day today. The boundary will move away from us tonight, but reposition itself near us again and bring us scattered showers on Wednesday through Thursday. A strong upper level jet is positioned near the boundary zone, and a strong low level jet is also responsible for our scattered showers since its bringing in moisture. Expect showers to develop on and off now through Wednesday night with temperatures to remain in the upper 60s.

Pictured above is the upper level jet that is going to bring us scattered showers for the short-term period.

Our chance for precipitation on Tuesday increases with the boundary zone moving back into our area.

Wednesday's chances for rain are strong as well, as depicted by the 6hr total precipitation map.

The boundary zone is clearly defined on the 850 height, temperature, and wind map.
