Overnight tonight may feature some patchy fog or drizzle, maybe even a stray light shower. An isolated shower or thundershower will be around into the evening hours on Tuesday. Wednesday features more sunshine and just the slightest chance for a PM shower or thundershower. Thereafter, the weather turns completely dry and we get a summer preview.

Forecast Discussion

A warm front will be skirting by to our north over the next couple of days, keeping quite a bit of cloudiness around and perhaps a passing shower or thundershower around into the evening hours.

We’ll be in a strengthening warm sector air mass by Wednesday, so while the chance for a pop-up thundershower won’t be zero, most places will be dry and will enjoy more sunshine than Monday-Tuesday.

Thereafter, the stage is set for our summer weather preview. We have high pressure establishing itself at the surface and aloft. This will provide a significant mechanism for sinking air, and thus, very warm temperatures and pretty much nil precipitation chances.

Skies will be mostly clear from Thursday through Sunday with above-normal temperatures. Highs may approach 90 over the weekend in a few places, the first time this season.

So, we go from below-normal temperatures last week to above-normal temperature this week in a full pattern reversal!
