Eyes on Ian as the storm lifts northward

Tuesday night forecast

It’s been a quiet evening to continue storm preps, and it will stay quiet for many. Some bands of rain may arrive overnight in far southern areas, but again most will be dry. Morning temps will be in the low 70s.

Wednesday will feature cloudy skies and increasing rain chances as Ian lifts northward. The heaviest rainfall will be southern areas, with highs in the upper 70s.

Ian will continue to push closer to the area Thursday and Friday, which is when the worst impacts will arrive. Tropical storm force winds, very heavy rainfall and flooding are all possible with the system.

The storm will quickly lift north late Friday into Saturday, resulting in much better weather for the weekend.
