Forecast: Dreary & depressing with downpours
FORECAST IN DETAIL
Not much good news to spread, for today anyway. We'll see rain, lots of it, and a return of cool, raw temperatures. Count it as penance for having the holiday off though, and we'll likely be rewarded with improving weather! Sunny skies will return and temperatures once again make a run at 50 to begin the week!
Today (Sunday): Blech! Rain begins early this morning and will be with us through most of the day. It'll be a cold, raw, soaking rain to boot with temperatures hovering within a degree or two of 40 for most of the day. Winds will be out of the east-northeast at 5-15 mph. Rainfall amounts will likely exceed 1 inch in some areas. Beware of minor flooding in areas where lingering snow piles on the side of the street are blocking drainage ditches. Confidence: High
Tonight: Showers could linger after dark but gradually lighten and dissipate into the night. Cloudy skies will remain and a mist may linger in the air towards morning. Overnight temperatures won't drop off much, only in the mid-to-upper 30s. Winds will be out of the northwest at 5-10 mph. Confidence: High
Keep reading for the forecast through Wednesday....
Tomorrow (MLK Day): Looks like we'll salvage our holiday weekend finale. We'll probably still see plenty of clouds during the early morning. But skies should gradually improve to partly sunny by late morning, leading to a fairly nice day with highs back to near 50. Breezes out of the northwest near 10-15 mph through midday decrease to around 5-10 mph later in the afternoon. Confidence: Medium-High
Tomorrow Night: Clearing skies make way for a fairly tranquil night around here. Overnight lows will dip into the upper 20s and low 30s (downtown). Winds will be generally from the west and light. Confidence: High
Partly sunny skies for Tuesday with temperatures probably reaching just shy of 50. By evening a weak cold front in our vicinity may (30% chance) produce some patchy light rain. Most should stay dry though under mostly cloudy skies and temperatures in the mid-to-upper 30s. Confidence: Medium
Wednesday won't be quite as warm with a 30% chance of light rain. Partly to mostly cloudy skies probably limit highs to the 40s. Confidence: Low-Medium
