Thursday night there is a slight chance for light rain as a disturbance moves through the flow allowing for some precipitation. Low temps will be in the mid-30’s. Friday continues a chance for rain, however the trough should begin to lift and temps will increase as the airmass begins to modify. Highs will be in the mid 50′ s on Friday with lows in the low 40’s. The same can be said for Saturday with the exception of clearing and partly sunny skies. Further out, temps begin to moderate Sunday into Monday as a warm front passes through our area Sunday night, bringing temperatures into the 70’s on Monday. This will be short lived however,A as a low pressure system is predicted to impact the area with thunderstorms on Monday.
