For the most part, we will stay dry the remainder of today. A few scattered showers can't be ruled out (primarily in the south) , otherwise most cloudy skies will stick around. High's today will be comfortable, once again, in the mid to upper 60's.
Working into Wednesday morning, another round of heavier showers and storms will work through. As discussed yesterday, this won't be an all day rain event, but instead, rounds of scattered showers and storms throughout the day. On Thursday, this system will work out, but only briefly. Friday, shower chances return the later half of the day from a new system to the west and will funnel in heavier showers and storms through the day Saturday.
As you can see from Saturday's anticipated map, heavier showers and storms will work through the day with a cold front on the tail-end. If you have missed winter, this is its return. Cooler and drier air will work in Sunday and early next week with high's back to near and below average.
If we take an extended look into the day Sunday, highs will be in the low to mid 40's for the valley. These cooler temperatures will continue into MLK Day and early next week. As promised, look for this cooler pattern to stick around the later half of January and into early February.
For now, keep those umbrellas handy as more rounds of showers and storms will work in tomorrow.
