It has been a pleasant surprise to see sunshine as long as we have this Monday morning. Clouds should arrive by the afternoon and into the evening with a chance of showers. We are looking to see a few hundredths to a tenth of an inch of rain. A better chance for a heavier shower will come on Tuesday.
Showers on Tuesday should arrive mid-morning. Scattered showers are likely throughout the day with a few pop-up showers heavier in nature during the afternoon before things clear out of the region. We look to see up to a quarter of an inch with a few areas seeing up to a half in heavier rain bands. Watch for wind gusts over the next few days as these showers move, though.
It will be a bit more breezy on Wednesday as the front passes on Tuesday, and we wait for the next front to approach on Friday. Winds will help clear skies on Wednesday into Thursday while cold air stays to the north. Temperatures will still be above average until Friday.
A dry cold front will move through the region on Friday, giving us more winds about the area. Temperatures will cool down closer to average as we head late week into the weekend with plenty of sunshine with a few clouds lingering about over the weekend.
Here is a look at your 7-day forecast:
Monday: Sunny skies will turn to clouds for the afternoon with a chance of showers. Highs will be in the low to mid 60’s. Winds will be out of the southwest at 5-15 mph with gusts up to 25 mph.
Monday night: Expect mostly cloudy skies with rain before midnight. Lows will drop into the 40’s and 50’s. Winds will be out of the southwest at 5-10 mph.
Tuesday: Plan on mostly cloudy skies with rain throughout the day. Highs will be in the upper 50’s and lower 60’s.
Wednesday: Watch for a mix of clouds with highs in the mid to upper 50’s.
Thursday: Turning more sunny with highs in the low to mid 50’s.
Friday: A mix of clouds as a system attempts to pass through the region. Highs will be in the upper 40’s and lower 50’s.
Saturday: Anticipate partly cloudy skies with highs in the low to mid 40’s.
Sunday: Partly sunny skies with highs in the upper 40’s and lower 50’s.
Have a marvelous Monday!
