We’ve experienced some rapid changes in our weather lately, it’s actually quite amazing. Today we made a complete 180 with blue skies and comfortable temperatures. The sky will remain mostly clear through tonight with lows near 40°. The good news is that sunshine will return tomorrow with afternoon highs rising to near 70°.
FEW SHOWERS SUNDAY: Another cold front is expected to approach our state tomorrow night and this will bring an increase in clouds for Sunday and a few isolated showers. This front should dissipate once it reaches us and it will be lacking upper level support. Temperatures will fall slightly with many areas remaining dry.
WARMER TEMPERATURES MONDAY/TUESDAY: One change that I like in this particular forecast is that the milder weather looks to hang around for more than two days. I’m expecting more bright skies for Monday with ample sunshine and highs in the low to mid 70s. Tuesday will also be a pleasantly warm day however the sky will grow increasingly cloudy as a disturbance approaches from the southwest.
RAIN MORE LIKELY TUESDAY NIGHT/WEDNESDAY: An upper level disturbance over Mexico is expected to enter our region on Tuesday with the possibility of showers as early as Tuesday night. The system will have the greatest impact on Wednesday with showers and a few storms likely. The heaviest rain looks to be in southern portions of the state. A surge of cold air should follow this system with lingering clouds and highs struggling to reach the middle 50s on Thursday. Lows Thursday night will be near freezing in areas along and north of the I-20 corridor.
TIME CHANGE: Don’t forget to set those clocks ahead one hour this weekend. Daylight Saving Time begins on Sunday at 2AM. This is a great time for you to test your NOAA Weather Radio and make sure it has fresh batteries.
Have a great weekend!
