It has been a spectacular day thanks to a bit of high pressure and a southwesterly wind. Temperatures boosted up into the mid-50s right afternoon going above our normal high for the day. This is the first 50 degrees day in about a month, so it’s a nice change of pace.
After the sunshine and warmth today, we have some changes in the forecast. A cold front diving south through the day tomorrow will bring back cloud coverage and a small chance for showers. A few light rain showers are possible in the late morning, but the better chance comes later in the afternoon and evening. These showers will be scattered as mostly rain moving from northwest to southeast, fizzling out overnight into Thursday. A brief turn to snow is possible on the back edge of the precipitation, but accumulation is unlikely. Rainfall amounts will run up to about a quarter of an inch. We will take a small hit in temperatures because of the front and wind shift. Expect to drop into the upper 40s for Thursday and Friday, which is normal in temperature for this time of the year. The 50s will be back over the weekend as a stronger system rolls in. This one will bring in the better chances for rain as a few stalled fronts figure out what they want to do over us. Rain will come to an end as we’re moving into early next week. Temperatures mostly remain above freezing for the extended future, with only a few exceptions.
