Another cold morning start, with temperatures running in the upper 30s or low to middle 40s. Of course, when you compare that to yesterday’s low of 12 degrees, we’re running between 20 and 35 degrees warmer. Cloud coverage and a southerly wind is the reason behind the warm up this morning. A few stray showers are showing up on the MaxTrack but very few are in our forecast area.

As we continue through Sunday, clouds hang tough as a passing trough weakens over the region. This will keep clouds in play all day. A few rain showers may squeeze out through the day, but they will be scattered and light. Rainfall amounts will be minimal and only amounting to a trace or up to a few hundredths of an inch. Otherwise, expect cloudy and chilly for your Sunday. Monday will be almost rinse and repeat, but temperatures will run warmer in the afternoon. We’ll start near freezing, but warm nicely into the middle 50s thanks to a southerly wind. A few stray showers are possible, but most will get through Monday with just cloud coverage. Rain is likely on Tuesday as a passing storm moves overhead. Showers will be widespread and light only amounting to a few tenths of an inch. While this isn’t the best scenario for the high water we still have, it’s much better than if we were to get a strong storm with heavy rain. After Tuesday’s cold front, we cool significantly for the end of the week, but rebound quickly as we approach the weekend. The good news is, we will have plenty of sunshine, and more importantly a DRY forecast through the end of the week and upcoming weekend.
