Another Week, Another Rain Event

Good Monday to everyone! I hope that you had a great weekend! Has everyone adjusted well to the time change? I know losing an hour of sleep was rough, but I love gaining that additional hour of daylight. The problem is, we haven't seen a lot of sunshine lately.


We should kick off this Monday fairly decent. High pressure is moving into the area, that will allow for us to stay mostly cloudy through the first part of the day, but as the initial gradient pushes south, we should see a decrease in clouds as we finish up the day. We should have highs mange to push into the low to mid 60's. Tonight we will see partly cloudy conditions will lows dropping into the mid to upper 30's.


Tuesday and Wednesday will be fairly tranquil around the area as high pressure establishes itself along the east coast. We will see mostly sunny skies both days, temperatures will slow fall each day. Tuesday highs will be around 60. Wednesday we should warm close to 60, with some late day clouds moving into the area ahead of our next weather system.


As we kick Thursday off models show us wedged in with the retreating high pressure. An approaching warm front, is forecasted to break down this wedge. This will lead to showers and maybe a few thunderstorms. Depending on the wedge, and how much instability the warm front brings a few isolated thunderstorms can't be ruled out on Thursday.


As the cold front approaches on Friday, models are showing the potential for some strong up-slope flow we could see some areas approaching 2" of rain. This could cause some flooding isolated flooding concerns in the foothills. The front should move through the area Friday evening, allow the winds to switch to the Northwest and clear us out, for what looks to be the first dry weekend in a while.


Have a great day!
