Rainy Stretch Ahead

Thanksgiving and Black Friday both featured plenty of cloud cover and areas of drizzle. Both afternoons were quite chilly as well, with highs near 40°. A break is in store for both Saturday and Sunday with partly sunny skies expected each day. The better news is that temperatures will push the 50-degree mark each afternoon behind the southerly winds and peaks of sunshine. But, as is typically the case, the nice weather won't last. Rain will move in Sunday evening and last through early Monday morning. That will be associated with one area of low pressure. A second area of low pressure will edge north from the Mississippi River Valley region by Monday afternoon.

That low will bring an additional threat of rain with it late Monday afternoon through late Monday night. Between the two low pressure systems will exist a possible lull in activity from Monday morning through late Monday afternoon. During this period it's certainly possible that we could see some drizzle or light showers, but many will see dry time during this stretch. The good news is that temperatures should still reach the 50's Monday afternoon. Tuesday looks dry with high temperatures once again topping out near 50°.

By the time we get to Tuesday morning the rain will be over. Many locations will see anywhere from one half-inch of rain to as much as more than 1" of rain. Skies look drier to round out the week, but clouds will remain strong each day as temperatures drop back to seasonal levels in the 40's.
