10Weather Forecast: Wet pattern arrives

Meteorologist Grant Gilmore forecasts the weather for Tuesday, Nov. 21, 2017.

After a beautiful start to our Thanksgiving week the moisture has already started returning out ahead of what will be a relatively wet rest of the week. A developing area of low pressure in the eastern Gulf of Mexico will track east and move over the Bay Area Tuesday. This system will bring us mostly cloudy conditions with a 70% chance of scattered showers.

The best chance of rain will likely be through the early-mid afternoon hours and then begin to drop through the evening and overnight. High temperatures will be in the middle 70s this afternoon.

As the system departs to the east the showers will let up, but a few showers will still be possible. Low temperatures will be in the middle 60s under variably cloudy skies.

Wednesday will see a relative lull in the rain chances before another system develops out of the Gulf for Thursday. We can expect Partly sunny skies on Wednesday, but a 40% chance of a few showers or storms will still be possible. High temperatures Wednesday will be in the upper 70s.

By Thursday the next system will be moving through the eastern Gulf, increasing our chance of rain once again. We can expect at least a 70% chance of scattered showers to develop through the day and then continue into Thursday night. High temperatures on Thanksgiving will be in the mid-upper 70s. 

Rainfall totals totals through the rest of the week will average around one inch.

Rain will likely hang around into the first part of the day on Friday before slowly clearing out Friday afternoon. Once the system moves on off to the east Friday afternoon the clouds will clear and give way to plenty of sunshine over the weekend. High temperatures on Saturday and Sunday will be in the low-middle 70s.

Have a great Tuesday everyone!

Rain chances return Tuesday, and could remain in place through Thursday.
