Good morning! I hope you are staying dry out there as pockets of moderate to heavy showers move through this morning. This could negatively impact the morning commute with ponding of roadways and reduced visibilities. Fortunately, this should begin to move out towards lunchtime, with activity coming to a close by mid afternoon. Thereafter, gradually clearing skies will allow for sunshine to return Friday and into the weekend. With that said, temperatures (though already cool) will be even colder to close out the work week tomorrow. Highs will be lucky to crack the 40 degree mark, with then moderating temperatures through early next week.
As far as unsettled weather ahead, we begin to quiet back down. After this ripple of showers today, high pressure brings warming temperatures and abundant sunshine for the next several days. A weak passing disturbance Sunday will bring cloud cover but generally most stay dry. Our next real rainfall maker doesn't arrive until Tuesday and into midweek.
After an overall chilly week, much warmer temperatures are coming. Check out how things compare to averages for this time of the year on Monday. Most will top out 10 to 15 degrees above average. This will equate to highs in the mid to upper 50s, with some even crossing 60. Most of next week will be well above average and comfortable with highs in the 50s and 60s each day.
That will do it for today, keep the winter coats around another day or two before shedding that for the arrival of warmer air later this weekend and next week.
