Forecast Discussion:

A cold front moves through Thursday afternoon and evening and brings the next chance of some showers to us, but it does not look good for folks who need rain; totals through the next 7 days are likely less than a quarter inch. Some areas may not get any rain at all!

Tonight skies remain clear and lows range in the 40s to mid 50s.

Thursday brings a chance of some showers in the afternoon and evening. Highs could range from the upper 60s north and northwest to mid and upper 70s southeast. The chance of rain is 30%. As mentioned above, rainfall totals will be scant; at less than 0.10” for most of the area. Some may only receive a trace of, or no, rain.

Behind this cold front, Canadian high pressure follows once again. It will bring the coldest weather we've seen since June. Highs will be in the upper 50s to near 60 with lows in the 30s Friday through Sunday. Frost or freeze conditions will likely be more widespread Friday night through Monday night. This will likely end the growing season in areas that see a hard frost or freeze. If you have ag interests, please consider making any preparations in advance of this cold air. The coldest night appears to be Friday night into Saturday morning with a some 20s not completely out of the realm of possibility.

By Monday we're still under high pressure, but it migrates east of us and temperatures moderate into the mid 60s. Lows into Tuesday will be in the 30s to near 40. More sun visits Tuesday and Wednesday with highs in the mid 60s rising to the low 70s Wednesday.
