From sunshine to scattered showers….Get ready for some rainy days ahead.

As we move through our Tuesday night, we’ll see increasing clouds, courtesy of a stalled front just to our south. A few isolated showers could develop into Wednesday morning. Low temperatures will be in the low 50s.

On Wednesday, we’ll see a good deal of clouds across the area, but we’ll also see some sun. A few isolated showers are possible.  High temperatures will be in the lower 70s.

By Thursday, expect a few scattered showers as pieces of energy ride along the stationary front to our south. An isolated thunderstorm is not out of the question.  Otherwise, we’ll see mostly cloudy skies. Highs will be in the mid 60s. Rain chances will ramp up on Friday and Saturday. Highs will be in mid and upper 60s.

Right now, Mother’s Day brings partly cloudy skies. Highs will be in the lower 70s.


Tonight: Partly to Mostly Cloudy. Isolated Showers (20%). Lows in the low 50s. Winds: S 5-10 mph.

Wednesday: Partly Cloudy. Chance of Showers (25%). Highs in the low 70s. Winds: SW/N/NE 5-10 mph.
