Quiet start to the week before turning soggy.
We’ll start today with some sunshine around the area, but a few more clouds will roll in this afternoon ahead of a weak disturbance. This disturbance will touch off a few isolated showers or drizzle tonight into early Tuesday morning, but they’ll be very light. Highs will rise into the upper 40s to low 50s this afternoon and only fall into the mid 30s tonight. After those showers/drizzle exit the area Tuesday morning, skies will turn partly cloudy in the afternoon with highs rising into the upper 50s.
Our weather will begin to turn active on Wednesday as a low pressure system develops and pushes into the area, bringing widespread rain, isolated thunderstorms, and breezy winds. The rain and storms will continue throughout Thursday before coming to an end on Friday. A solid inch to inch and a half of rain will be possible during this time period, and combined with the melting snow will bring flooding concerns across the entire area. Highs will generally be in the low to mid 50s Wednesday and Thursday and fall into the mid 40s Friday. A few spots in the far southern part of the area could climb into the low 60s Thursday depending on how far north the warm front gets.
After a soggy end to the week, the weather for next weekend looks very nice. Plenty of sunshine is expected on Saturday with high pressure in control. Models aren’t in agreement on how quickly the warmer air will push back into the area after that low pressure system moves through, but highs could be in the upper 50s to low 60s on Saturday and low to mid 60s on Sunday. There will be an isolated chance for showers or storms later in the day on Sunday into Monday.
Have a great Monday! Meteorologist Sam Kuffel 2:30 a.m. 15-April 2019
