MONDAY

Signs point to a more active weather pattern next week with multiple rain chances throughout the week. We’ll kick things off Monday with a vigorous front that is expect to bring strong storms to our region.

A SLIGHT risk has been issued for our entire area on Monday as a line of storms are expected to move east into our region during the afternoon and exit late into the evening. The main risk would be for damaging winds. An isolated tornado will also be possible if a supercell is able to form.

REST OF THE WEEK

Cool air will quickly move in behind the early week front bringing highs into the 50s and 60s Tuesday and Wednesday. It’ll also be pretty breezy immediately following the system!

We follow that with another rain-maker Thursday and Friday. That too will bring showers and another shot of cool temperatures. Most temperatures next week will hold in the 50s and 60s.

An upper level low will bring a wet stretch of weather into next weekend.
