Good evening, Foothills Weather Nation! You read that right! The sunshine we have been lucky to have for the later part of our day is looking to stick around for the some of our work week, which will give us a chance to dry out. Thank goodness.
Near Term Forecast (Tonight-Tuesday)
It's been a bit of a blustery day in the Foothills today and until we can see the racing dry cold front finally pass through the area later on tonight. Monday and Tuesday will both be gracious with seasonal temperatures in the upper 50's/lower 60's, mostly sunny conditions,
Short Term Forecast (Tuesday night - Thursday)
While Tuesday day will be mostly sunny, we will see an increase in cloud coverage Tuesday night as a flux of moisture and energy comes in from the Gulf as a surface high moves just offshore. We will be keeping temperatures just below average by a few degrees on Wednesday as a period of unsettled weather is at it's maximum, but we will be back to right around 60 degrees on Thursday. Expect about a quarter inch of rain for the Tuesday night through Wednesday time frame with mostly cloudy skies. There should be a pause in the rain late Wednesday, but into the overnight hours into Thursday those precipitation probabilities will be back on the rise. Thursday will be generally overcast and rainy as the unsettled pattern is pushed out ahead of a warm and cold front that will blast in at week's end.
Long Term Forecast (Friday-Sunday)
Friday is the start of the onset of the somewhat mild warm front that will move in through the area. The daily highs for Friday and Saturday will sit in the low 60's with partly sunny skies with a fair blend of rain. Early Sunday is when we will see that cold front march through the area bringing temperatures down into the low 30's overnight and upper 40's in the day.
Thank you very much for reading! I hope you all have a great week!
