We continue to dry out tonight which will give any remaining areas of high water, more time to recede. Temperatures will drop back into the upper 20s as we go through the evening. Skies remain partly cloudy and winds light. All in all a decent, but chilly night.
Wednesday looks good! More sunshine is on tap and temperatures are expected to be a bit warmer than they were Tuesday. Most will make it back into the upper 40s and low 50s! Any remaining areas of high water will continue to lower and no new flooding threats are in the forecast throughout the rest of the week.
Thursday is a little cooler through the day than Wednesday. Highs will be closer to the lower 40s, with more sunshine on the way. The factor that will drag down temperatures is a northwesterly shift in the winds which will pipe in some cooler air.
Friday is much of the same as Thursday just with a bit more cloud cover. We look to continue our dry stretch though with temperatures in the low 40s.
Saturday, clouds remain possible, but we stay dry. Northwest flow will still be holding on for a period of time through the day, so expect more clouds and slightly below average temperatures in the upper 30s and low 40s.
Sunday still looking nice, we maintain our 40s for another day but still stay fairly pleasant overall with more sunshine in the forecast for everyone. Another wave of high pressure is still pushing through keeping our northwest flow going as well.
Monday, we start to feel more like March. Highs in the 50s are expected as our high pressure drifts off to the south and swings us from northwest winds to southwest winds. The sun stays with us too, and there is the off chance it might even feel a little humid.
Tuesday and Wednesday will both be dry and we really start to crank up the heat. Highs on Tuesday are in the upper 50s and low 60s and by Wednesday we are in the mid 60s! We keep the warmth into Thursday, but look to bring back our next chance for rain. Flooding shouldn’t be a major concern at this point because we have had ample time to dry out.
In the extended forecast, high pressure seems to maintain it’s influence over much of the area. A few longshot storm systems are passing off to our west towards the end of the forecast period but for now they aren’t in range. Temperatures continue to rise and look to be above average at this point.
