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 along with the chance of a few showers.
Wednesday on the back of the cold front we’re cool with steady rain in the morning and showers through the afternoon. As the day goes on temperatures will slowly be falling too, our high temperatures will likely happen early in the morning. So be mindful mixing will be limited to the mountains at first but eventually, everyone is likely to see some wintry precip before the day’s end.
Any accumulations will largely be limited to the highest elevations at first. But as the ground cools we’ll likely see some snow accumulate on grassy and elevated surfaces as we transition from Wednesday into Thursday. Some icy spots should be anticipated for the morning commute!
Thursday we’re really feeling the effects of being behind another cold front. Morning lows will be near freezing while daytime highs with the current forecast will hover near the 40s. A few more snow showers and even some snow squalls are possible early before we dry out into the second half of the day.
Friday we’ll see temperatures rise but will still fall below average into the 50s for most. The first half of the day will be fairly sunny while the second half into the evening will features clouds thickening and rain starting as we head into Saturday.
Saturday will be a washout so be sure to plan accordingly. Rain is pretty much expected all day as another slow-moving system pushes its way through the area. Temperatures will be in the 50s and lows 60s at least so it won’t be a cold rain.
Sunday our rain chances dwindle through the morning hours but a few lingering showers might be able to hold on into the afternoon hours for most. We’ll remain cloudy for most of the daylight hours but by the overnight hours we should start to see some clearing. Highs in the 50s are expected.
Monday we kick the heater back on with sunny skies and a light breeze out of the southwest. Highs will make a quick return to the 60s and more seasonable weather for most.
The extended forecast hints at some of the warmest air of the year making it’s way in to end out the month of April. For now we’ll have to take the forecast with a grain of salt but it is nice to see the 70s return to the 10-day!
