Soak in the sun! Staying dry throughout much of this week
Highs will be near seasonable today before warming into the 70s for Tuesday
- Feeling like late spring/early summer by mid-week
- Frost possible Monday night-Tuesday morning
- Next weather maker approaches the area late-week
REST OF TODAY
We are staying dry with clear skies for the rest of our workday. Temperatures tonight will be chilly in the 30s area wide. Frost is possible to form so you may need to give yourself a few extra minutes tomorrow morning to defrost the car. A frost advisory has been issued to begin at 2AM Tuesday and continue until 9AM Tuesday.
TUESDAY - THURSDAY
A large ridge of high pressure will take control of our weather for much of this week. This means we stay rain-free through Thursday. This also will help supply us with warmer temperatures. Highs will warm into the 70s by Tuesday. Expect highs in the 70s and lower 80s Wednesday and Thursday under a good deal of sunshine.
Low temperatures will also start to warm up. Low-mid 40s are expected by Wednesday morning. Upper 40s and low 50s will build back in by Friday morning.
FRIDAY - SUNDAY
Our stretch of dry weather may come to an end by late Friday. An area of low pressure comes out of the Gulf of Mexico and approaches our hometowns by Friday and Saturday. Expect more cloud cover and the opportunity for scattered showers to build in. Stay tuned as we continue to fine-tune this part of the forecast.
Right now it doesn’t look to be a washout with a few of us seeing rain for Friday and Saturday. Sunday may bring the better chance for most of us to see showers as a cold front treks to the east.
