Forecast Discussion

A cold front moves through this morning ending the sprinkles and bringing colder air and gusty winds today. High pressure gives us a sunny and cool Sunday but clouds begin to roll in Sunday night. There could be some light rain late Sunday night ahead of a low pressure moving to our south during the day Monday. This low should provide just enough moisture for some light rain Monday, especially early in the day. Precipitation is expected to taper off for by Monday afternoon. Cold air and gusty winds move in Monday afternoon as well.

Tuesday is cold but the clouds depart. A noticeable warming trend begins Wednesday afternoon and continues for the rest of the week as high pressure to our south brings southerly winds and plenty of sun.
