We have good news and bad news in the forecast. The good news is the temperature forecast, with 60s in many areas likely the next few days. The bad news will revolve around all the rain and snow coming our way in the extended forecast.
First, today we’ll see areas of fog lifting and warmer afternoon temperatures. Here is the forecast.
With the warmer weather comes chances of showers and thunderstorms. We think a few will sprout tonight and track to the northeast. If you get in the path of one of these thunderstorms, expect a quick hit of rain with local amounts of .25-.50″.
More rain is expected Saturday night in the southeast. Again, local downpours will offer more rain that we’de like to see.
Highs will be warmer in between the episodes of rain. We still think many areas will be in the 60s.
Nice weather will linger through early next week, but a big change will come our way by Wednesday. A powerful storm is likely in the plains. In fact, the barometric pressure forecast on this storm is concerning to us, meaning a very strong winds event is possible. That forecast will depend on how signficant the temperature clash becomes by midweek. There will be ample moisture available for heavy rain and heavy snow. We’ll toss around both modes of precipitation, but it’s too early to determine how much of each.
This system looks alot like others in the past that have produced heavy swaths of snow and wind. The storm track will be key to what you see at your house.
In the meantime, enjoy the 60s. We’ll be much below normal at the end of the forecast.
