ROCKFORD (WREX) – A long spell of dry, sunny weather is just what some places in our region need after record rainfall. There is only one evening left before the rain finally stops.






Rainfall totals exceeded 5″ in a few places between Sunday and Monday. This is approaching the 2-day totals of early August when the flash flooding occurred. The showers are almost over with the release of the stubborn weather system.

Periodic drizzle rain persists until about 10 p.m. After that, the drizzle and light rain showers come out to the east, and we are left dry for the rest of the night. As skies clear, temperatures cool down to the low 50s.

Tuesday becomes sunny again, with warming temperatures. Highs are back to the mid 70s after 2 cool days in a row.

The warming trend continues for the remainder of the work week. Wednesday reaches the upper 70 degrees, Thursday around 80 degrees and Friday in the lower 80 degrees.

We are maintaining the low 80s this weekend, but the rain could return. The slight odds are mostly for Saturday night, for now.
