The first in a series of two cold fronts passed through the region Sunday afternoon bringing with it falling temperatures and some much-anticipated rainfall that most areas have not seen in almost two weeks. Temperatures will continue to fall throughout the night, with most areas near or just below 50 degrees before sunrise Monday. The cool stratiform rain showers will begin to diminish from west to east between midnight and 2 AM Monday morning. A secondary cold front arrives Monday bringing a lower chance for more widely scattered showers Monday afternoon given the cold upper-level temperatures atop warming surface temperatures juxtaposed with a return of some sunshine. Total rainfall amounts are likely to be in the 0.50" to 1.00" range for most of the viewing area through early Monday morning from this initial round of moderate precipitation on the heels of the first frontal passage Sunday night. In general, daytime high temperatures for the last week of September will be more autumnal and slightly below average, bringing an end to the above-normal temperatures we saw much of last week. There are some signals that the far northern sections of the viewing area will see overnight low temperatures flirt within a few degrees of the freezing mark by the end of the week.
