Forecast Discussion

After a cold start and some early sunshine, high clouds start streaming back in and most of the day will again feature grey skies. There won’t be any major worries with the forecast other than that though, just chilly temperatures sticking around for a little while longer through tonight.

The warming trend starts kicking in tomorrow with a warm front from the next very potent storm system rolling in. Even with mostly cloudy skies around yet again, temperatures will recover into the 50’s on Friday. This warm front won’t lead to any rain showers until Friday night most likely, but a stray shower can’t be ruled out during the day. The better chance for steady rain will come on Saturday, as the cold front with this storm system arrives. Recent trends have gone drier with this cold front, but we’ll still see a decent dose of rain. There’s also been a notable uptick in how windy it will get, as it’s going to take a lot of momentum and energy to transition from near 70 degrees down into the 30’s by Saturday night.

After this brief soggy and windy stretch, this storm system will already be clear of the area by Sunday morning. For the first time in several days, we will have quite a bit of sunshine returning with a strong area of high pressure rolling in. Temperatures will be cooler but not all that bad to wrap up the weekend, in the upper 40’s and lower 50’s on Sunday. After that, fairly mild conditions hang around next week with things staying sunny and quiet all the way into next Wednesday.

Have a great Thursday everyone!
