Drying out Today, Noticeably Cooler

Weather

Any lingering showers this morning will dry up fairly quickly outside of the mountains which could see the occasional sprinkle here or there through the day. With winds shifting to the northwest through the day, the sun will have a tough time warming us up. Highs are only expected into the low 50s for most.

Tonight, we really feel the brunt of the wind shift. Lows are expected to fall back into the low to mid 30s for most. A frost is possible pretty much everywhere by Friday morning, while a soft freeze (32-29°) is possible in some of the valleys where cool air can settle. Sensitive plants need to be covered or brought inside. Pets also need be taken in too!

Friday we look to keep things a bit drier for everyone as we end out the week. We will be cloudy still so we won’t see much of the sun. Highs will only make a short climb into the mid-50s as a result of the clouds and a stiff northwest wind.

Saturday, we’re cloudy again, and our small shower chances do make a quick return to the region. Highs remain cool and below average into the mid 50s for most, winds remain out of the west for the most part through the day.

Sunday we see more lingering chances for showers, they’re a little bit higher than they were the day before but not by much. Most won’t end up seeing rain but everyone will certainly see clouds. Highs will only make a quick jog to the mid-50s thanks to the lack of sun.

Monday we see a slow trend of warming beginning to take hold. Most should be near 60 or just above by the afternoon hours. Clouds will still be around along with the risk of a few showers but most should remain dry.

Tuesday, most should break the 60-degree mark as we see a quick wind shift which should help to provide some warmer air into the area as another front is set to push by. Some brief clearing with some sunshine is possible through the morning and early afternoon, but as the evening goes on clouds will thicken back up.

Wednesday on the back of the cold front we’re cool and showery once again. Highs will only be in the mid-50s for most much like they were in the week prior. Clouds will most certainly remain the dominant feature through the day.

In the extended forecast we maintain highs near to slightly below average and begin to see some clearing out of the clouds. High pressure will mainly be in control through this period which is really going to help us turn the corner.
