Forecast Discussion

A dry cold front approaches the region tonight resulting in some increasing clouds late. The front will press through Thursday with a few more clouds, but still a nice day.

Low-pressure will traverse the stalled-out front to our south and generate a period of rain on Friday, focused during the afternoon and into Friday night. If we play our cards right, the front returns northward as a warm front and places us in a relative milder break on Saturday and most of the day is dry with partial sunshine.

The wavy front sags back into the state on Sunday with more rainfall potential. For early next week, we’ll be at the mercy of this wavy, oscillating boundary. For that reason, we have a mention of rain both Monday and Tuesday, but don’t expect it to rain all the time.
