PM Update: Clouds increase tonight ahead of rain showers tomorrow

Another day, another high temperature above 50 degrees. Over half (8 of 15 days) have reached that mark now. We don’t get to that point in our averages until the end of the month usually. It was quite a beauty though today, tons of sunshine and little to no bothersome wind. Hope you enjoyed, as tomorrow won’t be nearly as nice.

Through Tonight: Clouds increase, and we’re mostly cloudy after midnight if not before. There’s a very slight chance of showers late, or toward sunrise more specifically. Thanks to increased clouds, lows are held up in the mid-30s to near 40.

Tomorrow (Thursday): As early as around sunrise a few sprinkles or a light shower could be in the area, but the first batch appears to swing north of us. However, as we go through the morning and into the midday the odds of showers go to likely. It’s probably not going to amount to anything more than light totals across the area, but it could be rainy off and on into at least late afternoon if not early evening. A south wind dominates much of the day, so even with clouds and showers we should shoot for highs in the upper 40s or lower 50s.
