Maybe Some Rain?

Sunshine will give way to increasing clouds by late afternoon or evening. A stray shower or thundershower is possible later today and tonight. Lingering drizzle or a light shower is possible on Wednesday before clouds decrease. Thursday through next weekend will feature some fabulous weather for outside activities, with full sunshine and pleasant temperatures (getting warmer over the weekend).

Forecast Discussion

A backdoor cold front will slide through the area by tonight and that might spark a stray PM shower or thundershower. Brief wedging will take place tonight and Wednesday as high pressure noses southward into the area from the northeastern United States.

Clouds will increase late this afternoon and particularly tonight, with a stray shower around. You’ll really be able to feel the difference in temperatures for Wednesday with mostly cloudy skies and perhaps a passing shower or some spotty areas of drizzle.

Skies turn sunny for Thursday and Friday along with wonderfully pleasant temperatures. High pressure will hold on right through the upcoming weekend as temperatures moderate. We could really use the rain, but it doesn’t look like anything significant is going to fall for many days.
