Clear & Colder

Temperatures dropped this afternoon after the passage of a potent cold front across the region. We’re left with clear skies tonight with breezy northwest winds that diminish overnight. Thursday is dry but seasonably cold. Temperatures warm up a little for Friday, and we remain dry until Saturday when occasional rain enters the picture. There could be a break in rain events Sunday during the daytime, but more off and on rain moves in for Sunday night, Monday and Tuesday.

Forecast Discussion

Winds will remain breezy this evening before dying down later tonight. Temperatures continue to drop overnight setting the stage for a chilly Thursday morning. Winds diminish tomorrow afternoon and temperatures warm somewhat Friday under high pressure.

Another cold front will approach from the west Saturday and create another chance for rain. That front passes through Saturday evening but stalls to the south Sunday. Sunday during the daytime looks dry, but the stalled front begins moving north as a warm front Sunday night, which will bring another chance for rain Sunday night into Monday. A third in a series of cold fronts will move in from the west Tuesday, keeping rain in the forecast. Temperatures will be quite mild ahead of the front and cool down quite a bit behind it.
