It is great to see the sunshine this afternoon which is helping to dry the area out after record breaking rainfall last week. Many area high school football games rescheduled for this evening and what a treat for you. Dry conditions with temps in the low to mid 60s at kick-off then falling to the upper 50s by the end of the games. Enjoy!
Clouds associated with a dying cold front will drift in for the night creating partly to mostly cloudy skies. Overnight lows will dip into the upper 40s to low 50s, still running a few degrees above average.
Cold front will move back north as a warm front so we may start the day with a cloud sun mix but the clouds will thin out once the front is north and high pressure builds in. Highs will reach 70 by the afternoon for what should be a nice looking day.
The next system approaches midweek bringing the clouds back and late day showers are possible. This next system won’t have a lot of moisture but enough to trigger a few showers. The best chance for the wet weather looks to be in the evening and overnight period as a cold front drops south of us. Highs will warm to the upper 60s to near 70.
The front should clear the area by early Thursday morning. Clouds will give way to plenty of sunshine Thursday but temperatures will be cooler and more seasonal in the mid 60s by afternoon.
There are some indications that a wave of low pressure could develop on the front to our south and bring a few showers back late Thursday night into Friday morning but as of now, Friday is looking to be dry for the day and evening with highs in the mid 60s.
BIG TIME CHILL
Over the upcoming weekend, a strong trough will settle over the east. Numerous disturbances will rotate through, keeping clouds around and may trigger a few showers. Right now it looks like there could be a few showers Saturday. More importantly, overnight lows will dip to the low 40s with highs struggling to get to 60 by Sunday. Monday morning lows will be cold in the upper 30s with highs only in the 50s despite more sunshine to start the week.
Thankful for the dry weather!
