The dry stretch that has been around since Halloween is coming to a close. A strong cold front could potentially bring some heavy downpours into the region early on Friday. Also, winds will be gusting from the south before it switches to the northwest and bring back the cooler temperatures.
While a few clouds kept Tuesday night on the mild side with lows in the mid 50s, Wednesday night will be more seasonable. Skies will be generally clear as temperatures drop into the mid 40s.
We should be able to squeeze out one more good day on Veterans Day. Expect the day to start out with mostly sunny skies, but it will start to cloud up as the day progresses ahead of the cold front. Any chance of showers will likely hold off until Thursday evening. Afternoon temperatures will be around 60 degrees
Through the course of Thursday night, the showers will become steadier and heavier. Winds will be an item as well as gusts to over 30 mph will be possible. The morning rush could be rough as the heavy downpours could create localized flooding on area roadways. The showers should taper off sometime between the midday and early afternoon hours leaving us with the possibility of a nice sunset.
Despite the downpours, a strong southerly wind will bring temperatures up into the mid to upper 60s on Friday. The winds will then shift to the northwest Friday night allowing temperatures to take a tumble.
On Saturday, temperatures will struggle to reach the mid 50s under a mix of sun and clouds. In the afternoon, an upper-level disturbance could bring the shot of a shower around. Temperatures will continue the downward trend on Sunday with highs holding in the upper 40s.
The chill sticks around heading into the next week. A weak system could bring the chance of shower on Monday. Temperatures will hold in the upper 40s. We will then see temperatures start to moderate with highs around 50 on Tuesday, then the mid 50s by next Wednesday.
