TODAY: Sunshine is the word of the day Monday, as we get it in abundance after a wet and cloudy weekend. Sunshine and a south breeze around 10 mph warm us into the low-to-mid 50s this afternoon.
TONIGHT: Skies will add clouds overnight as more moisture works in from the south. Temperatures stay relatively warm, as we start in the low 40s for lows by early Tuesday. Winds remain steady and from the south.
EXTENDED: Starting partly cloudy, temperatures will still be quick to warm on Tuesday with strong winds developing from the south. This will serve to mix up the air, and pull in more warmth from the south, allowing temperatures to climb well into the mid-to-upper 60s. Winds may gust as high as 35 mph or more during the afternoon, ahead of a cold front pushing in from the northwest. Light showers are possible ahead of the front during the afternoon, but activity is likely to be isolated with poor moisture availability. Moisture will gradually fill in ahead of the front, but likely wont be enough to create widespread rainfall until the front is east of us Tuesday night. Depending on timing, it is possible that we pick up some flurries overnight Tuesday into Wednesday, but accumulations are not expected. The bigger impact from this front will be the dramatic drop in temperatures we expect come Wednesday. We likely keep temperatures in the 30s at their warmest on Wednesday, and we may drop into the teens by Thursday morning. This is despite mostly sunny skies on Wednesday. We'll warm into the 40s Thursday under partly cloudy skies, thanks to a return to southerly flow that brings rain chances and mid-50 degree temperatures by Friday afternoon. The weekend looks mild at this point with highs near 50, and a chance for rain Friday night into Saturday, with another round possible on Sunday.
