The rain has moved out leaving only clouds and cool temperatures for the rest of your Monday. Cloud coverage will slowly break over the next few hours, but don’t expect much in the way of sunshine. Temperatures are running slightly cooler than yesterday because of the passing front and thick clouds. However, we’re still above freezing, and the melting of snow and ice continues.
We’re in for a real treat midweek thanks to high pressure and a southerly wind. Temperatures will have a chance to break 50 degrees for the first time since late January and we get that with abundant sunshine. The warmer than normal temperatures sitting well above freezing should take care of most of the snow/ice left on the ground and other surfaces. Only shady spots will keep it until about the weekend. One hiccup in the forecast brings a small chance for rain showers with a weak front. Lower temperatures will be the bigger identifier of the passing front, dropping us back into the low or middle 40s. However, a few light showers are also possible between Friday and Saturday. The payoff will be warmer air and more sunshine as we end the weekend and begin next work week.
