Forecast Discussion

Paraphrasing (very loosely) the old rhyme, March showers bring overnight valley fog. And that's what we expect to see later tonight and Monday morning. A shower or two cannot be ruled out Sunday evening.

After the fog burns off, Monday will be rather warm. With more humidity in the atmosphere, the ingredients will come together for afternoon showers and thundershowers. Most of the day will be good, but there will be some heavy downpours around. The showers last through Monday night. Tuesday will be less unstable, though a shower cannot be ruled out ahead of a cold front.

That cold front drops through early Wednesday. Actually, it won’t be cold at all at first, but we will dry out even as we experience mild afternoon temperatures. It will be a little cooler Wednesday night as cooler high pressure moves in.

A more intense low lifts to our North by next Friday. This may spread more abundant rainfall into the region, which will be enhanced as the moisture is lifted over a wedge of cooler air near the ground. We are not in a wet pattern right now, so we’ll see if the system actually ends up being as wet as it looks on today’s models. Cautious optimism is the word of the day.
