The workweek commences with periods of showers today, and we’ll keep rain chances in the forecast through Thursday. The rain keeps temperatures on the cool side of normal all the while. But Friday into the weekend, a sunnier and more summery weather pattern takes over.
Today (Monday): It becomes overcast this morning with showers becoming likely, especially by midday. The heaviest and most persistent rainfall probably focuses south of the metro region. Elsewhere, amounts may end up rather light (a quarter-inch or less). Clouds hold highs mostly in the mid-70s. Winds are light from the southwest. Confidence: Medium-High
Tonight: Rain showers taper off this evening, with mostly cloudy skies for the remainder of the night. We could see a few areas of fog, with lows at 60-65. Confidence: Medium-High
Tomorrow (Tuesday): We should have partial sunshine into the afternoon, but with a cold pool of air aloft, hit-or-miss showers may pop up in the afternoon. Highs range from 75 to 80. Confidence: Medium-High
Tomorrow night: We’ll have a slight chance of showers, but most areas should stay dry. Lows are within a few degrees of 60. Confidence: Medium-High
A trough of low pressure and its associated area of cold air aloft mean unsettled conditions Wednesday and Thursday. Neither days are washouts, but should feature variable cloud cover and shower chances — highest in the afternoon. Temperatures are cooler than normal, with highs only at 65-70 both days and overnight lows at 55-60. Confidence: Medium
A summer weather regime takes over Friday through the weekend. Each day should be partly if not mostly sunny. Temperatures trend warmer over the three-day stretch, with highs near 80 on Friday and into the mid-to-upper 80s Saturday and Sunday. Overnight lows are mostly in the 60s. Confidence: Medium
