Today offered the return of sunshine though the chill lingered. Highs did finally break out of the 30s, a nice improvement from the past few days. From time-to-time a northwest breeze has made its presence felt, but that too has been not as much of an issue. It will turn very cold again tonight with lows dropping into the low 20s under clear skies.
Monday will begin a warming trend that will last most of this week. A weak clipper system will pass by to our north which will usher in clouds but we will remain dry. More sunshine returns by Tuesday as a high parks itself to our southeast. This high will pump much warmer air north with low 60s expected Tuesday, and perhaps even nearing 70 degrees as we head into Wednesday and Thursday! More clouds will move in by Thursday with a few showers possible by Friday as a cold front approaches the Mid-state.
The unseasonably warm air will come to an end next weekend as highs drop into the 50s Saturday. That’s still above normal, but cold air could potentially be looming for the latter half of next weekend.
