Forecast: Rain Chances Linger
Drier then cooler weather on the horizon
By Brian Jackson
Spotty wet weather continues for one more day. Today will be quite similar to yesterday, cloudy and muggy, with a few showers around and about. A return to nice weather will be brief tomorrow as we see a chance for thunder on Tuesday. Then much cooler and fall-like weather arrives mid-week.
Still a chance for rain, humid. 79-82. Expect another cloudy and humid day today with a good (50%) chance for more scattered, intermittent showers as we get sandwiched in between the departing upper low and a cold front moving down from the northwest. Afternoon highs will rise to near 80 with some spots to the south a bit warmer from some breaks in the cloud cover. Winds will be light and variable and the still air will add to the mugginess.
We begin to transition towards drier air Sunday evening/night. We'll gradually see some breaks in the clouds and the humidity will noticeably decrease. Lows will bottom out in the low 60s and winds will be out of the north at 5-10 mph.
Keep reading for the forecast through mid-week
Partly to mostly sunny, 78-81. We'll see a brief return to the pleasant weather that we enjoyed so much before this latest storm. A ridge of high pressure should sweep over the area bringing us a genuinely pleasant start to the workweek. Some afternoon clouds may develop but we'll stay dry and highs will be around a very comfortable 80 degrees. Winds will be from the north at 5-10 mph.
Monday night will bring a chance to open the windows again overnight. Skies will be mostly clear and our overnight lows will be range from the upper 50s to lower 60s (suburbs to city).
Tuesday brings a chance for more unsettled weather as a weak area of low pressure to our north drags another cold front across the metro area. We'll see partly to mostly cloudy skies along with a 40% chance for some afternoon thunderstorms. Highs will once again top out around 80 degrees.Confidence: Medium
We turn much cooler Wednesday behind the cold front. Temperatures will struggle to reach 70 under a mix of clouds and sun. Confidence: Medium
