What a beautiful weekend we had! With a high pressure system in place, temperatures have been quite warm for much of the eastern half of the US. For you Spring lovers, temperatures will remain above average (in the 60's) throughout this week. As for today, we'll stay dry with cloud cover increasing throughout the afternoon.
Enjoy the lack of rain today before showers return into Tuesday. Looking below, our next system lies just to the west. Rain will begin working in overnight and through Tuesday before moving out by the afternoon and evening hours.
Model guidance tells the story of shower activity this week. Rounds of showers on and off each day will be more of an annoyance than a washout. As you can see, showers will thin out by tomorrow evening before another round returns into Wednesday. Much of the same can be said for Thursday and Friday as well.
Even though shower activity is likely each day, it won't be a wash out for the area. Rounds of scattered showers will be the main story this week with totals between 1 and 3 inches. This week will be more of a pester with the showers than it will be a washout.
That concludes the forecast for today but keep the umbrellas handy the next couple of days, scattered showers stick around much of this week.
