Pleasant Days Ahead

The next couple of days feature plenty of bright sunshine along with seasonably pleasant temperatures. It does get cold enough tonight for some areas of frost, so if you still have flowers and hoping for another week or so of life, it may be wise to bring them inside. Rain chances make a return to the forecast for the upcoming weekend. Yea, perfect timing huh?

Forecast Discussion

Canadian high pressure will be overhead for today through Thursday, promoting bright sunshine and seasonably cool temperatures. Some areas of frost will be a good bet tomorrow morning, especially in the valleys.

Weather forecast models remain in some disagreement with the handling of the next weather system, although starting to show some signs of better agreement for the weekend. We still believe Friday and perhaps most of Saturday could end up being dry, with rain opportunities returning for Sunday. One big change we made was to bump temperatures up quite a bit for Saturday and especially on Sunday as it now appears some much warmer air makes its way in from the south. We also dried Monday out somewhat but not completely. At this point, Tuesday looks dry and seasonably mild.
