A strong cold front will move through the region on Sunday and Monday, bringing us a good chance for rain.
On Sunday high temperatures will range in the upper 70's to lower 80's. The morning will begin with cloudy skies and patchy fog could develop in areas where winds are light. During the afternoon hours we'll see mostly cloudy skies, with a few rays of sun. By the afternoon we'll continue to see increasing clouds and increasing rain chances. There is a 50% chance for a shower or thunderstorm during the day time, with rain chances increasing in the evening and overnight hours.
By Sunday night widespread rain and thunderstorms will move in. We may see some isolated severe thunderstorms. The biggest threat from these would be hail, strong winds, and heavy rains, but the possibility of an isolated tornado can not be ruled out. Low temperatures in the upper 50's to lower 60's. Winds from the S at 5-15 mph, with higher gusts in thunderstorms.
On Monday we can expect continued rain and thunderstorms, especially before noon. Temperatures should drop a few degrees during the day time once the cold front passes through, keeping our high temperatures in the lower to mid 50's. By the evening hours we'll begin to see clearing skies. Expect a strong northerly wind at 15-20 mph with higher gusts.
Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday look to be great weather days. We should see sunny skies, dry conditions, and cool temperatures. In fact, many areas will likely see a freeze on Wednesday and Thursday morning, with temperatures dropping into the upper 20's in some areas.
By Friday a Pacific cold front works it's way into our area. This one won't be quite as strong as the first, but we should still see a few showers on Friday, and more showers on Saturday.
Stay weather alert through Monday, and then enjoy the great weather!
