High pressure will be taking control of our weather pattern for most of the second half of the work week. Tonight will be clear and cold, with lows in the 20s. We look to stay windy at times through sun-down, but winds should recede overnight, becoming light after midnight.
Thursday is looking a tad warmer and dry with plenty of sunshine. We will wake up to areas of frost, but temperatures should warm up into the mid to upper 40s Thursday afternoon. Cloud cover will be on the increase Thursday evening, and we look a little breezy again, but not as gusty as Wednesday. Overall, tomorrow night should also be dry with temperatures dropping into the 30s.
A big warm up is on the way for this weekend! An upper level ridge and warm southerly flow will allow temperatures to climb into the 50s Friday, and into the 60s on Saturday! Despite the Spring-like temps though, we are going to get wet, and windy again.
Cloud cover will continue to thicken into Friday as a potent area of low pressure develops to our west and will begin to head our way. A few showers could pop up Friday, but the heaviest rain looks to roll in on Saturday as this system comes in- especially Saturday afternoon and evening. With the saturated soil, flooding issues, at least in poor drainage areas, cannot be ruled out this weekend. Winds will become gusty again this weekend, especially into Saturday night-Sunday AM. With that being said, downed trees/power outages with the wet ground could be possible. Stay tuned!
