Bright and mild today
After a lengthy spell of unseasonably cool weather to start the week, we have a much warmer and more pleasant Thursday in store for our area. High pressure is moving through the region, providing us with abundant sunshine and more tranquil weather with a gusty west breeze that is working to warm temperatures to the lower 60s this afternoon.
A storm system from the west will move into the area for Friday, bringing clouds and rain chances to the area. Clouds will thicken this evening with light rain showers developing well after midnight. The bulk of the rain we'll be experiencing Friday will move through the area in the morning with just sparse showers and sprinkles for the afternoon and early evening. High temperatures tomorrow will be in the lower 50s with a slight south breeze that will diminish later in the day.
Cool sunshine Saturday
Clouds will slowly clear off through Friday night with occasional sunshine and clouds in the area on Saturday morning and then increasing sunshine in the afternoon. High temperatures will be around 50-degrees which is about ten degrees cooler than the seasonal average. A brisk northwest breeze will add an extra chill to the air at times during the day.
We'll start the day Sunday with cool sunshine before a weak disturbance moves in, bringing clouds and a few light showers to the area in the late morning and early afternoon. A few snowflakes will even be possible at the onset of the shower activity before temperatures climb into the 50s later in the afternoon.
Warmer early next week
Warm air will blow into the region to start the upcoming workweek helping temperatures climb above the seasonal standard for the first time in more than a week. Expect a spotty shower or two first thing Monday morning with sunnier, breezier weather in the afternoon as temperatures warm from the 40s to the upper 60s through the course of the day.
Gusty south winds and occasional sunshine will help temperatures reach the lower 70s on Tuesday, but clouds will thicken in the afternoon with a few isolated showers and thunderstorms possible ahead of a storm system that will move in from the southwest.
Showers will hang around for most of the day next Wednesday making that most likely the wettest day of the week. High temperatures will be in the upper 50s.
A few spotty showers will be possible next Thursday with a fair amount of sunshine in the area behind the departing midweek storm system. High temperatures will be in the mid and upper 50s, just a few degrees cooler than the seasonal average.
Another storm system will bring rain chances late next Friday and for the following weekend with high temperatures in the seasonable lower 60s to start the month of May.
