As sometimes happens around our area, we jump from a chilly, early spring weather pattern right into an early summer pattern. And today, with sunshine and temperatures reaching the middle 80s in spots, it’s feeling more like late June.
The overall weather pattern will continue to feature well above average temperatures for at least the next 7 days and probably longer. In the shorter term, we see a 40% chance of scattered thunder showers tomorrow and Wednesday. A cold front slowly moving closer to our area will be the cause for any shower or storms that develop. By Thursday and Friday, a briefly drier pattern will develop and create partly cloudy skies with high temperatures close to 80 degrees.
Here we are on Monday afternoon trying to forecast weather conditions for next weekend. And we have many more questions than answers at the moment. Our current outlook is for partly cloudy skies on Saturday with a 30% chance of showers. And partly cloudy and dry weather on Sunday. Weekend high temperatures may reach the lower 80s. As the week progresses, weekend conditions will come into better focus. So keep checking back in for updates.
