  • Wedge brings clouds and cooler weather Sunday
  • Rain possible Monday with mild temps
  • More active weather next week

After another mild day Saturday, we’ll experience cooler and more seasonable weather on Sunday thanks to the wedge returning. A very active weather pattern next week could provide much needed rain chances to the region.


A wedge of cooler air will settle into the region Sunday bringing afternoon highs down to the low 50s with mostly cloudy skies. Rain is not expected during this time.


Monday will remain partly to mostly cloudy as a front moves through. A few late morning to early afternoon showers are possible, but rain totals out of the western mountains will likely be low. Highs return to the low 60s with gusty winds.

An area of high pressure will build behind the front which will introduce cooler air. Afternoon highs will reach the upper 40s to low 50s Tuesday through Friday.

The best chance of showers this week may end up being Wednesday as more of a southern system slides into the region. This may offer everyone a chance at some lighter rain. Some models are showing this system staying further south bringing limited rainfall to the region. This will be something to watch in the coming days.

Rain is possible next week.

The story has remained the same this fall in Southside: rain has been hard to come by. A very dry November has introduced a Severe Drought to parts of Southside and doesn’t look likely to resolve itself soon with more dry weather likely into next week.

Moderate to severe drought covers much of the region as of this week.
