Rain returns Tuesday
Highest chance of rain is Tuesday and Friday
Rain could be heavy late week
Mother’s Day looks dry…for now
Clouds increase tonight with lows in the upper 40s to low 50s. We do not expect any precipitation tonight.
Our brief stretch of dry weather Monday evening comes to an end Tuesday with the passage of a cold front. Rain will begin anywhere from late morning Tuesday through about midday and move out of the area into the late evening and early overnight period from northwest to southeast. Temperatures could range from the mid and upper 50s north Tuesday to mid to upper 60s south based on expected placement and timing of the cold front. As the front drops past your area, expect a quick drop in temperatures. A thunderstorm is also possible with locally heavy rain. Rain chances decrease substantially into the overnight.
Wednesday brings a much lower chance, but a chance nonetheless, of a few isolated rain showers. These will likely depend on thunderstorms that are expected to develop in the Midwest overnight tonight. Upper level disturbances created from those storms will migrate eastward and move into the northeast Wednesday. Should the storms be stronger, or longer lasting, it could create larger disturbances and increase our rain chances. The reverse is also true. Weaker and not as long lasting could lower our rain chances, or at least, delay them until later in the day. We’re keeping the chance of precipitation a 20% for now.
Thursday has more chances of showers. We’re keeping the chance at 40% for now with highs in the upper 50s to near 60. A low pressure system moves into the Great Lakes Friday and brings the highest chance of rain the remainder of the week with a warm front/cold front punch. It may turn a bit muggy and highs could hit 70. The chance of rain and thunder is 90%.
High pressure should build in for Mother’s Day weekend. We’re keeping both days dry for now with sun and clouds Saturday followed by increasing clouds Sunday. Highs will be around 60 both days.
