We finally managed a completely dry day across the area which is welcome news for those hoping to let their lawns dry out! Unfortunately, we talking more rain this week with the potential for some more soakers. If there is any good news it’s that temperatures finally begin to rebound by the midweek and beyond with perhaps a stretch in the 70s! This is a big deal as we have yet to string together more than 2 days in a row in the 70s this year even though our average high temperature is now 70 degrees!
Temperatures tonight won’t be nearly as cold as this morning as low temperatures fall back into the mid 40s thanks to an increase in our cloud cover.
Our next storm system arrives for Tuesday bringing light rain showers to the area by the midday and perhaps some more steady rainfall heading into Tuesday evening. While rain is an unwelcome sight, we will also need to keep an eye on the wind for Tuesday afternoon and evening. Easterly wind gusts could top 40 to 45 mph which could cause some trees to uproot thanks to soggy soil.
An isolated rain shower or rumble of thunder threat lingers into Wednesday as high temperatures finally make some headway back towards spring. Look for high temperatures to to the lower 70s for Wednesday with highs remaining in the 70s through the weekend. Another round of showers and thunderstorms arrives late in the day on Thursday with the chance for thunderstorms holding on into early Friday morning. This weekend starts out dry with an increasing threat for showers and thunderstorms late in the day on Sunday and lasting through at least Memorial Day.
