Good Wednesday evening, everyone! Much of the day was nearly perfect with mostly sunny skies and seasonable temperatures. That brief stretch of great weather won’t last, as a cold front pushes southward overnight. Scattered showers are likely as we go into the night and through the early morning hours on Thursday, but this will not impact the rest of the day tomorrow. The afternoon and evening should actually end up being rather nice with seasonable temperatures and a decent amount of sunshine. Another front, however, will approach on Friday. For the 9th time in a row, measurable rain is possible on Friday via a chance for some showers and even a storm or two.
This front will set up shop near our neck of the woods, which will put a little uncertainty in the temperature forecast. For now, we’re trending on the warmer side of things, but a chance for some showers and a storm or two is still in place regardless of how warm or cool it gets. Another system will push into the region on Sunday, sending yet another chance for some showers and storms our way (Though chances here are a bit lower than Saturday overall). Saturday’s front will push northward on Sunday, allowing temperatures to climb well into the 80s for Sunday and even into Monday. A cold front will arrive for the start of next week, keeping shower chances in place. We’ll try to dry out for the middle of the week.
Here’s a look at your extended forecast:
Tonight: Increasing cloudiness with a chance of rain. Lows: 52-57. Northwest winds around 5 mph.
Thursday: Some morning showers will give way to a sunnier afternoon. Highs: 72-77. Northwest winds at 5 to 10 mph.
Friday: Partly cloudy with a chance of showers and a few thunderstorms. Highs in the upper 70s.
Saturday: Partly cloudy with a chance of rain. A storm or two is also possible. Highs in the upper 70s.
Sunday: Partly to mostly cloudy with a chance of rain. Highs in the low 80s.
Monday: Mostly cloudy with a chance of showers and a thunderstorm. Highs in the upper 70s to low 80s.
Tuesday: Becoming mostly sunny. Highs in the mid to upper 70s.
Wednesday: Partly sunny with an isolated shower or two. Highs in the upper 70s to low 80s.
Have a great evening!
