There will be a chance of showers starting around 4PM today. But don’t expect any major downpours. As you can see from the image below, we are only slated to get 0.04in, barely 1mm, of rain.

So really the dry spell continues. This dry spell isn’t unheard of though. The last time we had one this long in November was in 2002. It lasted from Nov 20 into December.

The real threat of rain won’t come until the weekend… And with it is the threat of some snow too as cold Arctic air is coming back down to see us. The models currently have a chance for just a little bit of snow on Sunday and Monday. Less than an inch… But widespread..

We will see if it comes to fruition.
