Damp and windy Sunday, but blue sky is back soon

We’re being treated to a dreary Sunday today. Showers continue to sweep over the area today in several pockets, but should generally come to an end in the afternoon. It’ll be much cooler and windier as well. Highs will only reach the middle-upper 50s with a northwest wind 15-20 mph gusting to around 30 mph at times.

The good news? Sunshine and warmer temps start our new week. Clouds will decrease Sunday night and although Monday begins quite chilly with temperatures in the upper 30s to low 40s, we’ll warm nicely into the upper 60s for afternoon highs.

Come Tuesday temps will climb into the middle 70s. Our next threat for rain comes Tuesday in the form of scattered showers, but that night into Wednesday a line of thunderstorms is forecast to move in, some of which could be on the strong to severe side. We’ll need to monitor that closely.

Temps briefly dip into the low 60s Thursday, but quickly return to the 70s for the first day of May. Next weekend might actually feel like summer. Models are indicating temperatures in the upper 70s to around 80 degrees!


TODAY: Scattered showers with an isolated thunderstorm. Low: 49. Wind: W 10 mph.

TONIGHT: Showers come to an end and clouds decrease. Low: 42. Wind: Light NW

MONDAY: Sunny and warmer! High: 69. Wind: Light & Variable.
