Sorry to those of you who were holding out hope that the upcoming winter weather warning would bring snow; the weatherfolk are quite clear that it will be just rain, perhaps starting as freezing rain tonight. I was just out at Cleveland Park and there was a light misty sprinkle, but that was it. The heaviest of the rain will fall tonight, easing up through the morning, then turning sunny.
Afterward we’ve got high wind warnings! After the rain subsides tomorrow, expect wind gusts of up to 60mph, with possible power outages and a small chance of flying lobbyists.
