Some sunshine and warmer temperatures return Sunday
Unsettled start to the workweek
- Spring-like conditions return Sunday
- Rain chances return Monday
- Near 70° Tuesday through Thursday
We will stay mainly dry overnight with temperatures cooling into the 30s and low 40s. There is a chance some patchy fog could develop into Sunday morning.
If you’re a fan of the spring-like air, then Sunday will be perfect for you. We warm back up as highs reach the 50s and 60s with drier conditions. Clouds will hang tight, especially during the morning hours. Some clearing is possible into the afternoon. Eventually, the chance for rain returns as we start into the new workweek.
Monday is looking wet. Showers are possible during the morning hours as a warm front lifts north. Off-and-on shower chances continue throughout the day as a cold front approaches from the west. This will be a mainly rain event. Highs on Monday will be in the 50s and 60s. Overnight lows will be very mild in the 40s and low 50s.
Drier conditions push in for Tuesday and Wednesday with highs in the 60s to near 70.
By Thursday, we track our next chance for some scattered rain. Models have been back and forth with the timing so check back for updates. As of right now, models are hinting that Friday could be very wet. We could also possibly see another cool down come our way Friday into the weekend.
