Dry & Much Warmer This Weekend
Still Mild To Start Next Week
Saturday’s Forecast High: 65F / Tonight’s Forecast Low: 45F…
Much warmer this weekend, with sunny to partly cloudy skies. Expect highs in the low-mid 60s… which is about 10-15 degrees above average for this time of year. It won’t be quite as windy as Friday was, with wind speeds generally in the 5-15 mph both days… perhaps some gusts around 20 mph in more wind prone areas. Don’t forget Daylight Saving Time comes to end this weekend at 2 a.m. Sunday, so set those clocks BACK 1-hour when you head to bed tonight.
Still mild Monday with gradually increasing clouds. Highs will be in the low 60s. Mostly cloudy and not as warm Tuesday, with highs back in the mid 50s.
Looking Ahead… Forecast models are advertising a storm system to impact the region during the second half of next week. However, there are still plenty of question marks on the timing and intensity of the precipitation. So for now, I’ll include at least slight chances for rain showers each day Wednesday through Saturday. What does look fairly certain is temps turning much cooler, with highs only in the low-mid 40s next Friday and Saturday. With overnight lows near or below freezing, any rain showers around could mix with snow showers. Stay tuned for updates as the model data becomes more certain early next week.
In the meantime, get out and enjoy this fantastic weekend! -Bill Graul
