Well, the up and down ride that is spring weather will continue this week. We just can’t seem to get an extended period of time with nice weather.
It’s a beautiful morning across the region. There are some low clouds hanging around in the eastern portion of the region and down into the foothills. It made for some very cool sights driving up 321 this morning as the sun shone down into the cloud filled valleys below. These lower clouds will dissipate throughout the morning hours and everyone will see lots of sunshine today with more summerlike temperatures. Highs will be in the mid 70’s today for most locations.
Things will change quickly tonight. A strong cold front will cross the region overnight, bringing widespread showers and thunderstorms with it. The NWS will more than likely issue a flash flood watch for tonight and gusty winds are also expected with the front.
Temperatures behind the front on Tuesday will be much colder than what the forecast was calling for on Friday. Highs tomorrow will only make it to around 50. Thunderstorm activity will end in the morning but the area of low pressure is going to become cutoff tomorrow, meaning showers could last into the evening hours.
High pressure builds into the region for Wednesday and Thursday with rebounding temperatures and a return to blue skies. Highs by Thursday will be in the mid 60’s. A fairly impressive storm system arrives on Friday.
