Classic Spring Trend This Week

Good morning to you, fellow reader! For the week ahead, the forecast will be rather expected from the season that we are in. Some days will be wet, muggy and others will be dry, comfortable. In today’s post, we will take a look at the wet start, dry mid-week, and wet end to the week to come!

Here, start your day off right with some kittens…(GIPHY)

Rain Today

(Outlook for Monday and Tuesday)

For the start of the week, there will be overbearing cloud cover as a low pressure system propagates eastward. With it will come the passage of a cold front in our region, promoting precipitation chances for the entirety of Monday. These showers and storms will remain scattered with light precipitation totals expected.

This will call for oppressive humidity from high dew points, resulting in muggy conditions. On top of that, temperatures will peak around the upper 70’s. Spring, anyone?

Into Tuesday afternoon, skies will gradually clear, but temperatures will be slightly cooler. Expect a high in the lower 60’s. This will definitely be a better day to spend outdoors!

Sunshine to Come

(Outlook for Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday)

By mid-week, high pressure will have set in fully, leaving us with clear skies. Even better, the forecast will remain dry for the remainder of the work week. This will have temperatures trending upwards, peaking in the upper 60’s on Wednesday, lower 70’s on Thursday, and mid-70’s on Friday.

Cloudy, Wet Weekend

(Outlook for Saturday and Sunday)

For the weekend, chances for precipitation will return to the forecast. For both days, showers and storms will remain scattered with light precipitation. As of now, severe weather is not expected.

Whilst temperatures will remain warm, peaking in the upper 70’s Saturday and mid-70’s Sunday, conditions will once more be sticky. If you plan to spend time outdoors, to possibly jog on a break from the rain, be sure to stay hydrated. Humidity can be pesky!
