Expect highs into the 50’s later this afternoon as a large area of high pressure keeps us very calm. Tonight’s conditions will feature a little bit of a chill, but many locations should stay just above freezing as we continue to warm up.
As mentioned above, high pressure is going to be the main player for the forecast through about mid-week. It’s going to be lingering almost overhead, but it will eventually head east and continue to bring in some warmth from the south. We’ll see the most noticeable warmth during the overnight hours Tuesday and Wednesday, with highs holding steady in the 50’s. Clouds will start increasing a bit late Wednesday into Thursday as the next low pressure center starts churning our direction. For the end of the week and into the upcoming weekend, the pattern will overall be more unsettled.
Questions do remain however as to where this storm will track exactly, and that could impact exactly what we see. Right now, trends are starting to favor a more northerly track, which would mean continued warmth and rain being the main precipitation type. There won’t be much rain Thursday with the initial warm front passage, with the bulk of any rain possible Thursday night. After a brief break, the cold front will already Friday and stall out into the weekend, giving us a more solid chance of scattered, steady rain showers on Saturday. All the while, temperatures will spike into the 60’s Thursday, drop a bit into the 50’s Friday and Saturday, then plummet back down again into the 40’s next Sunday.
Have a great Monday and enjoy the sunshine!
