The Bite Is Back

Sunshine prevails this afternoon with temperatures noticeably chillier than Tuesday. Add in some NW wind, and the air will have a bite. Clouds return overnight and there will be some spotty light rain on Thursday, but it won’t amount to much. Friday will feature quite a bit of cloudiness, but fairly mild temperatures for the time of year. Weekend weather will be sunny and seasonable. More rain is back to start next week.

Forecast Discussion

Skies will be sunny today and temperatures will be a few notches cooler behind a cold front. A weak disturbance passing to our south on Thursday will bring some spotty light rain to the mountains, and it’s possible there could be a dab of freezing rain around daybreak. For the most part, there’s just not going to be much precipitation tomorrow.

Friday looks dry, but with considerable mid-and-high level moisture, there will be a lot of clouds around. The weekend features abundant sunshine and seasonably cool temperatures under the influence of high pressure.

The next and more significant storm system will be coming out of Texas by late in the weekend and heading to the east-northeast. Rain will overspread the region later Sunday night and Monday looks soggy. We should be back into the clear by next Tuesday.
