Hello Cardinal Country! Yes, it looks pretty dismal out there and probably feels that way, too, but I do have a light at the end of the tunnel! We are dealing with the results of a disturbance that is starting to make its eastward trek out of our area, but it will do that slowly, giving us mostly cloudy and cool/damp conditions through the evening hours. We then get some dry time into tomorrow where we actually have a better chance of reaching temps closer to average for this time of year before an area of showers & a rumble of thunder or two make it to our area in association with a cold front that looks to switch things back a month weather-wise. A gradually tapering shower regime with mostly cloudy skies Sunday into Monday is also accompanied by brisk winds gusting as high as 30 mph which could make the below-normal temps feel even chillier (hence the sad tone to the beginning of this forecast), but there is hope for us to regain nicer weather close top what we saw yesterday (or better)! A ridge of high pressure looks to “assert its dominance” & spread eastwards, and after some lower to mid 50s Monday and Tuesday (respectfully), we look to get some scintillating 60s back into our weather picture along with partly cloudy conditions in the second half (especially Thursday into Friday) of next week! Stay classy & fly safe/dry/warm, Cardinals, and let’s make it a wonderful Finals Week ahead next week. May fair winds and fine seas be the conditions for our graduating seniors (or clear air, visibility unlimited (CAVU) for those who are more into aviation than sailing). Keep in touch!
