AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
WARMER, MORE SUNSHINE TO START THE WEEK: Skies will clear as we go through Monday, and that will lead to warmer temperatures. More shower/t-storm chances return for mid- to late week, as temperatures stay at or slightly below normal.
MONDAY AND TUESDAY: We start to see warming weather on Monday as a ridge starts to make its way into the valley. Sunny skies will be here to start the week. Highs Monday will be in the upper 70s south and the upper 60s north. On Tuesday, a low approaches from the west as we cloud up and become windy. Most of the day looks dry with showers/t-storms developing in the evening/overnight hours, some of which could be strong to severe. Highs Tuesday will be in the mid-80s south and the mid-70s north.
WEDNESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY: A frontal boundary will set up over us and keep the chances for showers/t-storms in the forecast for this timeframe. Daytime highs will also fall. Wednesday's highs will be near 80 south and near 70 north. Thursdays highs will be approximately 5 degrees cooler. By Friday, highs again will be about 10 degrees below normal for this time of year with temps in the lower 70s south and the lower 60s north.
SATURDAY AND SUNDAY: High pressure works into the viewing area, giving us plenty of sunshine for the weekend and warmer temps. Highs both days will be in the upper 70s south and the upper 60s north.
