Showers Today; Much Cooler Temps Next Week
Published: 4.25.15 7:24am
Good Morning Folks! Scattered showers are moving into the region as we speak and will continue through most of the morning hours. We considered the fact that stronger thunderstorms to our south could rob the moisture being transported north when writing the forecast this week and it indeed is happening this morning. With this in mind, we now expect lighter intensities and a lessened chance for severe weather today, but a decrease in coverage seems unlikely. Rainfall totals will be lessened by roughly a quarter inch, putting most of the region around a half inch of rain for the event, as light spotty showers continue past midday. Temps will remain on the cool side of the coin today as they only rise to the upper 50’s – mid 60’s, with a steady wind out of the SW. Overnight into Sunday showers will linger across the region and a tenth – quarter inch of rain is possible, with temps dipping into the upper 40’s – mid 50’s.
Sunday morning features a few lingering showers, however shortly before midday most of the action should be off to the east with gradual clearing the rest of the afternoon. Temps will be able to push into the upper 50’s – upper 60’s depending upon elevation and be sure to enjoy the warmth as all of next week looks to be below average and rather chilly at times. Overnight into Monday will keep temps to the low – mid 40’s as colder air begins to filter into the region from the west; mostly clear skies overhead.
Monday and Tuesday both offer up pleasant yet chilly weather as mostly sunny skies sit overhead, however temps only rise to the low 50’s – low 60’s both days, with overnight lows sitting into the upper 30’s – mid 40’s. Tuesday may provide us with some late day clouds as moisture ramps up across the region overnight into Wednesday, in advance of the scattered showers expected to arrive by the middle of the week.
Wednesday and most of Thursday will feature showers and from the looks of it, we expect it to be a chilly and damp setup, one that mimics late winter. Reason being we expect temps to only rise to the upper 40’s – upper 50’s on Wednesday and low 50’s – low 60’s Thursday, with mostly cloudy skies overhead and scattered light showers throughout the day. Thursday may feature only morning showers, however we cannot be entirely sure this far out in time.
Overall, showers today, pleasant and warm tomorrow, chilly yet sunny Monday and Tuesday then followed by more rain with even cooler temps Wednesday into Thursday. ENJOY!
