CLEARING WILL BE BRIEF
Small weak area of high pressure has cleared our skies behind a departing cold front. It will be brief as the next system is quickly moving our way and brings the clouds back after midnight. Lows will be colder in the upper 30s to near 40. There could be a few morning sprinkles or stray shower.
SHOWER CHANCES LOOK WEAK
Wednesday an upper level disturbance will swing through keeping skies mainly overcast. There could be a few sprinkles or stray showers early but nothing more. More importantly, it will be noticeably cooler with highs only in the low 50s!! The coldest air of the season will rush in behind the disturbance for the rest of the week.
COLD, COLD, COLD
Thursday and Friday the flow aloft will continue to pump in colder air. Sunshine will mix with clouds for Thursday and right now it looks as if we miss out on any shower activity. Highs may not touch 50 on Thursday and we may not do much better Friday as it will the coldest morning forecasted of the week with lows near freezing. High pressure looks to build in Friday and clear our skies later in the afternoon and evening. The upper level pattern relaxes and milder air will move in for the weekend, although temps will still be running well below normal. It will be a cold morning Saturday with lows near freezing. With sunshine we should see highs reach the low to mid 50s by afternoon. We’ll do even better Sunday with a few more degrees but a quick moving system will bring in some clouds early Sunday, clearing as the system pulls away.
Monday will start out cold in the 30s but plenty of sunshine and a change in the weather pattern will allow for temps to get to the mid and upper 50s. Tuesday will be warmer with temperatures finally get back into the 60s under increasing clouds.
Bundle up folks!
