The 5-day has some noticeable patterns this week. The first half of the week looks to be dry and sunny with gradually increasing temperatures. A great sign for this time of the year. Thursday we will see clouds increasing throughout the day as a system tracks towards our area. On Friday, the rain will likely begin in the afternoon hours and taper off in the early morning hours before another batch of rain rolls in on Saturday, dousing the area for much of the day. Temperatures are going to be above average, potentially reaching near 60 on both Thursday and Friday. A cool down is expected after the rain rolls through, bringing temperatures back down into the 40s; similar to our current situation. Enjoy the sunshine for the first half of the week because it looks to be in serious lack for the latter half of the work week and weekend.
