Clouds, clouds, and more clouds. Rainy week ahead!

Good Monday afternoon to you and yours!

It's a cloudy and rainy start to our work week as a cold front moves in and begins to stall over the area from today through Thursday evening. With this front we can expect plenty of rainfall during this time with a slight chance of lightning on Tuesday afternoon due to increased CAPE values. We can also expect cooler than seasonal temperatures start to settle in Tuesday night starting with overnight lows in the upper 40's and Wednesday's high in the low 50's. We will start to see this front clear out of the area on Thursday evening which will bring diminishing precipitation probabilities and cloud coverage...for a couple of days. Friday and Saturday will be mostly sunny days, but they will continue to be below climo with highs in the 50's and lows in the 30's. Late Saturday evening into early Sunday we will see increasing clouds as a backdoor cold front will progress in from the northeast and settle in a classical Cold Air Damming event for Sunday and Monday with ample opportunity for rain as we can see a reasonable moisture profile. At this time we are unsure on when this CAD will have opportunity to break, but we know the start to next week will maintain theme to this week.
