Synopsis: Cooler and unsettled weather will be the main weather story as another weather disturbance moves east across the state today into Thursday. This mainly dry system will keep windy conditions around along with high temperatures limited to the 70s both today and again on Thursday (15˚F -20˚F+ below normal)! Light showers will be possible later today into the overnight hours, though measurable rain totals will be spotty with the best chances across higher terrain areas. Moving ahead, a slow warming trend will commence through the end of the week.
For today plan on sunny conditions this morning with increasing cloud cover later this afternoon into tonight. Daytime temperatures will remain limited to the 73˚F -76˚F range around the Valley. West/southwest winds will be breezy in the 6-12mph range with gusts around 20-25mph especially over the higher terrain locales. Overnight light lows will dip into the mid 50s with scattered light showers possible into Thursday morning.
For tomorrow plan on a return to mainly sunny skies across the region behind the departing disturbance. Afternoon highs will remain mild in the 76˚F-79˚F range around the Valley. Variable winds will ease back into the light category with no noteworthy gusts to contend with. The warming trend will kick into high gear on Friday and Saturday. Plan on dry conditions and plenty of sun with highs rebounding into the upper 80s on Friday before reaching the low 90s on Saturday. We’ll have full details on this tomorrow.
