The First Alert Forecast from Meteorologist Dorrell Wenninger
After plenty of sunshine mixed with some passing clouds, haze and temps well into the 80s today, a ridge of high pressure will begin to move East and away from the Midwest. In lieu of this departing high pressure we will start to see the approach of our next front. The beginning of the work week will bring increasing clouds followed by rising rain chances becoming likely, late Monday. Widespread showers & thunderstorms will continue through the overnight hours and into Tuesday morning. There will be a slight risk for severe weather with this system.
The rest of the work week will bring a chance for rain each day. This includes another system that will move through the area Thursday night, into Friday morning. Temps will fall into a slightly cooler pattern through our mid-week before returning into a seasonably average range by the end of the week & weekend.
