Rain Chances Return, Getting Cooler
An approaching cold front that has left wintry conditions in the Plains and Midwest will lose steam as it slides through our area on Saturday due in part to high pressure to our east. Isolated showers are possible as the front passes, but most of us won’t see any rain. The front becomes stationary to our south Sunday and lifts back toward the area briefly as a warm front. Several shortwave pulses of energy will ride along the front and give us isolated showers Sunday into Monday.
Rain chances increase to scattered showers on Tuesday out ahead of another surface front that will pass through Wednesday/Wednesday night. This front will cool daytime highs down into the 70s and nighttime lows into the 50s Thursday into the weekend.
Drought conditions across the area continue to deepen, but the impending rainfall will try to help alleviate some of our woes with up to 1.5″ possibly falling through Tuesday night.
