StormTracker Forecast… A cool start to the work week with areas of fog, but it will not be an issue past the mid-morning hours. Cloud will build ahead of our next system leaving us partly to mostly cloudy with breezy and warm conditions. Afternoon temperatures will top out in the low and mid 70s. Temperatures won’t fall much overnight as skies become cloudy — Steady temperatures in the upper 50s to lower 60s with slight rain chances.
Scattered showers and storms will begin to move into the area on Tuesday, but not all areas will see rain. Rain chance is currently around 30-40%. Temperatures will continue to trend above-normal.
As a strong cold front inches closer to our area on Wednesday, showers and storms will become likely. Some storms may even be strong or possibly even severe. The current timing looks to mainly be during the afternoon and evening hours. The Storm Prediction Center currently has our area under a Marginal Risk (threat level 1 out of 5). Stay tuned as we fine-tune the forecast. Rainfall totals will be between 1-3″.
Rain will likely linger into Thursday as the cold front passes. Temperatures will be in the 50s on Thursday. We dry out and clear out by Friday and temperatures will be a touch warmer in the mid-60s.
If you have plans to go to the local parades this weekend, overall, you are good to go. A shower or two may be possible late on Saturday, but for now, we are keeping rain chances quite low.
