High pressure provided a beautiful day and the evening is just as nice. Clouds will be streaming back in overnight. Since we are under the influence of an east-southeast flow, low stratus clouds may form as well as patchy fog by morning. This will keep temperatures on the mid side dropping to the low to mid 50s.
RAIN THREAT RETURNS
The next system approaches late tomorrow a chance for late day showers but the best chance appears will hold off until evening and overnight. This next system won’t have a lot of moisture as most of the dynamics are located to the north but we could pick up a tenth of an inch. Despite clouds, with the flow out of the south, temperatures 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 only to return late as a more potent upper level disturbance moves in towards evening bringing yet another threat for showers. Good news it looks as if the rain will move out by Friday morning. Amount of rain could range from a tenth to a quarter of an inch with isolated higher amounts. Highs Thursday with mid-day sunshine should get to the upper 60s.
Temperatures will be seasonal both Friday and Saturday with highs in the mid 60s. Mostly sunny skies Friday will become partly sunny for the start of the weekend.
BIG TIME CHILL
Over the upcoming weekend, a broad trough will settle over the east. Numerous disturbances will rotate through, keeping clouds around and may trigger a few showers overnight Saturday into Sunday. More importantly, overnight lows will dip to the low 40s with highs in the low 60s so a bit cooler, certainly seasonal, but by Monday morning lows will be cold in the upper 30s with highs only in the 50s despite more sunshine to start the week. It will be brief as by Tuesday we are seeing temperatures rebound to the low 60s.
