Clouds will eventually break up for a bit tonight. That will allow temps to fall to the upper 20s to low 30s. They will return quickly tomorrow morning. We should remain dry through the commute. In fact, any rain chance tomorrow is minimal and will be isolated.

Lots of clouds with minimal peaks of sunshine and a southeasterly flow will cause temps to slowly climb. Warm front pushes northward during the afternoon so we won’t see our high for the day until very late and they should peak in the upper 40s to near 50 degrees. Isolated showers will be possible but there will be plenty more dry hours than not.

Keep the umbrella handy or nearby because you will need it Thursday. Mild night with a more southerly breeze picking up, lows expected to hold steady in the mid 40s.

Better threat for scattered showers Thursday but there will be dry hours too. Best chance for a good soaking will be with the passage of the front late Thursday night into Friday morning. A rumble of thunder can’t be rule out either. We could pick up .50” or more of rainfall. Highs will soar to the low to mid 60s with a good push of milder air out of the southwest despite the clouds and shower threat.

Once the front moves out of the area, an upper level trough swings in for Friday and Saturday. It will bring a return to cooler air. However, Friday we should still hit 50 temps will fall fast during the late afternoon. Highs will only reach the upper 30s to near 40 for Saturday. Strong upper level energy will also keep the clouds around to mix with the sunshine. Breezy conditions for Friday should settle starting the weekend. We rebound to the upper 40s with more sunshine on Sunday before the next system brings the clouds back late and a few flurries or sprinkles for Monday.
