Temperatures during the day will hike back up into the mid-60s due to strong southwesterly flow on Sunday; lows will remain in the mid-50s overnight, as rain chances continue.

Monday, April 11 – Showers & Storms – High 68˚ / Monday Night – Showers & Storms – Low 44˚

Due to its orientation, the low pressure system in play will take its sweet, sweet time pushing out of the region. We will continue to be under the influence of the warm front on Monday, allowing temperatures to jump back into the 60s.

The southerly winds associated with the warm front will bring very moist air into our region, allowing for heavier rounds of precipitation. Monday and Monday night will be pretty soggy, as the cold front finally pushes its way through during the evening hours. The rain will stick around until early Tuesday morning.
