Temps Remain Below-Average for the Week, Periods of Clouds & Showers

Editor’s Note: This is the first of what will likely be many blog posts authored by new MWN Meteorologist Intern Caroline MacDonald. We look forward to posting these more in-depth weather updates on a regular basis than we have of late. Caroline is just one part of that diabolical plan to keep you better informed on area weather! Please welcome her to MWN!

I wish I could say that the rest of this week was going too be sunny and warm, but unfortunately Mother Nature won’t allow me to. This week looks to be characterized by below-normal temps with plenty of clouds and some showers.

Scattered showers from earlier today will continue to move out through the overnight hours tonight. Temps will fall into the mid 50s overnight. Dew point temps in the low 50s and saturated grounds from today will leave prime conditions for overnight/early morning fog development. Fog development will depend on how the skies clear overnight. If our cloudy skies remain in place, expect patchy fog in some low-lying areas. If we are able to get more clearing, more widespread fog development will be possible. Any fog that develops should dissipate around sunrise.


The upper-level low that brought showers today will continue to hang around our area tomorrow, leaving cloudy skies behind. There is a slight chance of showers into the afternoon hours. Any shower that develops will be light and scattered in nature. These dreary conditions will keep temps in the 50s through the AM hours and the 60s into the afternoon. Expect high temps to be well below-average with highs near the mid 60s.

We will finally begin to see some clearing in the cloud coverage as we head into the evening hours tomorrow with temps falling into the mid 50s overnight.


Things look to start off pretty nice on Wednesday with some partly sunny skies. By the afternoon, another cold front will be knocking on our doorstep. Luckily we won’t have to worry about temps dropping drastically with this front. High temps will remain in the upper 60s with overnight temps falling into the mid 50s. 
Along with this front will be some more scattered showers. Showers look to begin around / after the lunch hour and continue through the evening hours.

While we will not see a lot of rainfall in terms of total accumulation, we will see enough that you may want to keep the umbrella handy for those sprinkles.


Some early morning showers may linger from the night before, but skies will begin to clear as we move through the day. We may even get to see the sun, just maybe.
This clearing will help to propel highs once again into the upper 60s. Overall, Thursday looks to be the go-to day for the week for those outdoor evening plans if you have any. Partly cloudy skies will allow temps to fall into the low 50s overnight. 


Friday appears to be one of those good news and bad news types of days. The good news is we may get some more clearing, which will allow some partly sunny skies during the AM. The bad news is that by the afternoon, yet another cold front poses to move through. This will bring another bit of showers along with it. Regardless of the showers, temps will remain below-normal with highs topping off in the upper 60s. 
While there are several rounds of showers possible this week, there won’t be heavy rainfall events nor any thunderstorms. Less than half an inch is expected now through early Saturday.
