Rain, Rain, Going Away…
Rain. Yep, it’s back. We’ll see scattered showers tonight, and perhaps a rumble of thunder mixed in as well. The good news is that there is no surface instability, so any storms will stay well below severe levels. Temperatures will actually be steady tonight or rise a few degrees as low pressure to our northwest intensifies and pushes a weak warm front through the area.
Tomorrow will be the warmest day out of the next week or so, with highs either side of the 70 degree mark under a mostly cloudy sky. Showers and perhaps an isolated thunderstorm will be scattered about to start the day but will lessen in coverage in the afternoon.
A cold front will sweep through the area Tuesday night into Wednesday, bringing a colder and drier air mass in its wake. Temperatures will fall back to below seasonal averages with highs in the 50s and lows in the upper 20s to lower 30s. We may see two or three nights of subfreezing temperatures late into the week and the weekend.
The air mass will moderate with warmer temperatures in store as we welcome in the month of March next week.
