You'll need the umbrella as we head into the next couple of days as our next weather-maker approaches our state. The good news-- I'm not expecting the rainfall totals to be overwhelming... matter of fact most locations will pick up less than a half inch over the course of Tuesday and Wednesday. The better news-- the data is suggesting that the colder air will filter in once most of the moisture is gone, so that means measurable snow isn't likely. (with the exception of out west in the mountains) But we are looking at a couple of gloomy days, with on and off showers being a bit of a nuisance. High pressure builds into the area by Thursday, and we'll see mainly sunny skies to round out the week.


An area of low pressure, with a cold front will track to our north over the next couple of days. The bigger player here will be the temperatures swing. Temperatures will swing more than 30 degrees through Thursday night as colder air moves into the area. Winds will be a bit breezy for the rest of the work week so it will feel a bit colder than the air temperatures-- so you'll need the heavier coats, especially in the morning.


Afternoon highs will drop from the upper 50s (today) down to 55° by Wednesday. The cold front slides through Wednesday night at temperatures only warm into the mid 40s. The coldest day will be Saturday, where highs only climb to the upper 30s -- but winds will be gusting 30+ mph so feel like temperatures will be in the upper 20s/lower 30s. Morning lows will be in the 20s Friday morning through next Monday. Temperatures will return to near seasonal norms by next Monday.
