Mix of Sun & Clouds Sunday, Colder Monday

Todd Simcox

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

We’ve got a quiet night on tap for tonight with some lingering cloudiness in spots. Skies will be variably cloudy with the bulk of the clouds over northern areas. Temperatures will range from the upper teens to mid-20s for nighttime lows.

A cold front is forecast to cross the state on Sunday. The front will give us a few clouds and the chance for a few isolated flurries otherwise the front comes through fairly unnoticed. Temperatures will be in the 30s to near 40° for highs. Colder air will move in behind the front for Monday. High pressure will build into the region Monday giving us a sunny start to the work week. Despite the sunshine, temperatures will only be in the mid-20s to low 30s for highs Monday afternoon. An upper level disturbance passing to our north on Monday may give us a few afternoon clouds otherwise sunshine will prevail all day. High pressure will slide to our east on Tuesday giving us another nice day. We’ll see plenty of sunshine to start the day with a few clouds moving in during the afternoon as our next storm system approaches the area. With the high to our east, south/southwesterly winds will make for a slightly milder day with highs on Tuesday reaching the mid-30s to low 40s.

Wet weather will return to our forecast on Wednesday. Low pressure moving through the Great Lakes Region will push an occluded front through New England on Wednesday bringing us periods of rain. At this point, it looks like the airmass will be warm enough so that the precipitation falls mainly as rain. Temperatures will be in the upper 30s to mid-40s for highs Wednesday. As precipitation winds down later Wednesday and Wednesday night, cooler air coming in behind the storm system may allow for lingering rain to changeover to mixed rain/snow or possibly all snow showers before ending. Thursday will start out with a chance for some lingering rain/snow showers followed by brightening skies as the storm pulls away and high pressure moves in.

Tonight: Variably cloudy, most clouds north. Lows between 17°-25°. Light and variable wind.

Sunday: Mix of sun and clouds with a few flurries possible. Highs between 31°-41°. North wind 5-10 MPH.

Monday: Mostly sunny and chilly. Few afternoon clouds moving in. Highs between 24°-32°. Northwest wind around 10 MPH.

Tuesday: Mostly sunny with a few afternoon clouds. A bit milder with highs in the mid-30s to low 40s.

Wednesday: Rain likely. Highs in the upper 30s to mid-40s.

Thursday: Morning rain/snow showers possible then brightening skies. Highs in the mid-30s to low 40s.
