Sunshine today, (some) rain tomorrow

Showers/storms return midweek
Posted at 3:49 PM, Apr 27, 2020

We were graced with plenty of sunshine today after a nasty weekend. Rain and strong storms Saturday gave way to widespread and persistent rain Sunday. Now we get sunshine and temperatures warming from a cold morning start near freezing. We should hit the mid-60s before the sun sets. Wind has been a non-factor with the high pressure.

We will start Tuesday morning off with more cloud coverage thanks to a weak front sliding in. It will not amount to much rain, but scattered showers will fall, mostly in the morning. If you don’t get rain, expect abundant cloud coverage and a warm up into the low 70s. Rain will arrive in a more widespread fashion Wednesday morning as a cold front arrives. The line of showers and thunderstorms will slide through before peak heating, but as it exits, some isolated thunderstorms could fire up and get strong. Regardless, most of the storm activity will be mild at best. Storms will exit late Wednesday and another round of wrap-around moisture will blanket us for Thursday. Expect a few scattered showers through the day and temperatures to cool into the upper 50s. We rebound nicely through the weekend and the sunshine will return.
