EVENING: Mostly clear and cool. Temps in the low 50s.

TONIGHT: Increasing clouds with a stray shower. Low 42.

WEDNESDAY: Mostly cloudy with a few showers. High 62.

Tonight won’t be as chilly with clouds increasing and a passing shower possible.

Tomorrow, a trough will help produce scattered light showers across the region. Expect between 0.10-0.25″ of rain with plenty of dry periods in between the showers.

Thursday offers a seasonably nice day with highs in the 60s and a fair amount of sunshine, especially during the first half of the day.

We are getting more confident in the forecast for the start of the weekend. An area of moisture arrives Friday to give us several hours of a steady rain that should bring around 0.3″ to 0.5″ of rain for most. This system is slow to exit and will likely produce a drizzly and cloudy Saturday morning. Another system arrives for the end of the weekend and the latest guidance suggests that it arrive late Sunday which means our Sunday morning should be dry. Still some moving parts in the weekend forecast to pin down, so we will keep you posted on the details.

The extended outlook shows the first week of May remains chilly with highs in the 50s and 60s, lows mainly in the 40s.
