WHAT TO EXPECT
A few clouds continue to stick around through the overnight and into Monday morning, but that won’t stop temperatures from cooling overnight as we head back into the lower and middle 30s for Monday morning. Patchy dense fog will be possible for a few areas to start the day so you will need to keep an eye out at the bus stop for kids and allow yourself a little extra time before heading to work.
Mostly sunny skies will arrive for the afternoon and with calmer winds it will make for a nice afternoon ahead as temperatures will remain above average. Highs Monday are back into the middle 50s. Winds won’t be as big of a factor for the afternoon so a light jacket may be all you need as you head out the door or maybe to the park to enjoy some fresh air. Warmer weather is still to come as we are slowly building the afternoon temperatures through the week.
Clouds begin to increase on Wednesday and that will eventually lead to scattered showers as we head into Wednesday night and Thursday morning. Rain will slowly taper through Thursday afternoon as temperatures remain steady in the lower 60s. Clouds stick around for the majority of Friday before additional showers arrive and transition to some snow for the higher elevations.
Temperatures do take a plunge heading into next weekend as we are back into the lower 40s Saturday and slowly begin to warm as we head into early next week.
