With the passage of the cold front it is much cooler today. Compared to this time yesterday, temperatures are on a scale of 15 to 20 degrees cooler and afternoon highs in the mid 60s will also highlight this change. Fortunately, we will gradually warm in the days to come, with highs Friday and into the weekend in the 70s to low 80s (for some). As far as the remainder of the day, any lingering showers in the east will diminish as cloud cover works out and sunnier skies build in. We remain mostly sunny through Wednesday and parts of Thursday, before our next disturbance arrives late Friday and into the weekend.
Checking out rain totals over the next 7 days, they will run fairly close to average. The WPC suggests rainfall totals between half an inch and an inch. This would be good as we have been running on the drier side, even with the ~0.5" last night. Nonetheless, shower potential will make a return late Friday and into the weekend.
For now, enjoy the cool off and increasing sunshine this afternoon. We will see temperatures gradually warm in the days ahead, with plenty of sunshine through Thursday.
