TONIGHT: Partial Clearing. Lo 52. Winds: Light.
MONDAY: Mix of Clouds and Sun, Seasonable. Hi 74. Wind: S 5-10 mph.
TUESDAY: Mostly Sunny, Milder. Hi 80. Wind: SW 5-10 mph.
A weak area of low pressure was problematic today for our weather locally, as clouds remained stubborn throughout our Sunday. Eventually the clouds did give way to very light showers late this afternoon and evening. Rain totals coming in to us are only around a few hundredths of an inch, just enough rain to make for some damp conditions. Some clearing is likely overnight with lows in the low to mid-50s.
Monday should be a pretty nice spring day overall with a mix of clouds and sun. We cannot totally rule out a brief shower tomorrow afternoon, but we just don’t see any widespread opportunities for rain. Highs will be in the low to mid-70s.
A large ridge of high pressure will develop from the central US to the east coast. As a result we expect unseasonable heat to build through next weekend. This looks like a prolonged stretch of dry and hot weather. Highs in the middle 80s are expected to arrive by Wednesday and Thursday afternoon, with highs near 90° Friday through Sunday! The humidity should gradually rise by Friday too, with a summer-time feel to the air. Unfortunately rain chances are vanishing from this forecast as a result of the building heat. A few showers and storms are possible by late week, but those chances are not worth counting on at this point.
