Pleasant Monday after a chilly start…
WBOY STORMTRACKER 12 WEATHER SYNOPSIS:
It’s been cool and brisk the last couple of days but it appears we will be back in summer-like temperatures for Tuesday and then again at the end of the week. Cobalt blue skies were the rule today and after a cold start we were able to rebound back into the 60’s to near 70 degrees. It was cold enough for frost in some locations. As temperatures cool and winds become calm there is the possibility of a few areas of patchy fog especially in river valleys and in the mountains . Sunshine will clear that fog and thanks to a southerly air flow on Tuesday, temperatures will warm into the mid-70’s in the lower elevations and the 60’s in the mountains.
Clouds build Tuesday night and a cold front moving in from the Midwest will bring scattered rain showers mainly Wednesday morning and a few more raindrops into the afternoon and evening. Temperatures Wednesday will be in the 60s and 50s.
Thursday will be cool with sunshine gradually replacing the clouds and a high near 60. It’s going to be a different story across the mountains. Over night Wednesday temps in the mountains will be in the 30s and 40s with trapped moisture from Wednesday’s system as well as a cool, northwest wind will bring a few upslope rain showers with some potential snowflakes mixed in. This is something to keep our eye on! Once this clears, sunshine will take over across the region warming us back into the 70s to around 80 by the weekend.
