Forecast Discussion

Outside of a few stray showers, we’ll continue with dry conditions heading into tonight, with any leftover clouds clearing out as well with a cold front finally crossing the region. It’s still going to be a bit on the warmer and muggier side tonight, with lows still in the 60’s. Heading into Sunday, it’s going to start trending more comfortable and slightly cooler. Expect a beautiful, mostly sunny day to end the weekend, with highs topping out around 80 degrees.

We continue to trend cooler and quiet into the start of the work week as high pressure begins sliding to the east. Monday will be partly cloudy, but then it’s going to be even cloudier on Tuesday as the next storm system approaches from the west. We may see a few spotty showers Tuesday night, but the bulk of any rain is going to take place Wednesday. It’s going to be a soggy first day of fall, as this system is going to be fairly strong when it arrives, and we could even see some heavy rain as the cold front with this system crosses through. It doesn’t look like thunderstorms will be a concern as of right now, but this bears watching in the coming days.

Showers slowly wind down Thursday, but it’s likely we’re still dealing with a bit of soggy weather toward the end of the coming week. Canadian high pressure and a very solid taste of fall are on the way for next Friday and Saturday to wrap up the extended forecast. Plenty of sunshine with afternoon temperatures in the 70’s can be expected, with overnight lows all the way down into the 40’s and lower 50’s. We may even chill out enough for a few scattered upper 30’s in the mountains. Fall is right around the corner!

Have a great rest of your Saturday!
