Ehhhh this weekend wasn’t too bad! We didn’t see a ton of sunshine and we did have some showers this morning, but at least it stayed warm with highs in the 70s!
That initial batch of rain we had this morning is long gone, but another round of showers and storms will cross the region this evening. Those thundershowers are associated with a cold front that will definitely cool things down for Monday and Tuesday.
So far, we picked up close to 1″ to 1.5″ of rain in some spots.
Clearly, with more showers in the forecast, those numbers will go up a bit.
With this second round of thundershowers, some isolated storms could be on the strong side.
There is a marginal risk for some isolated storms to produce brief strong winds and/or hail. It’s a good thing we didn’t see much sunshine today because that would’ve destabilized the atmosphere and led to a better chance of widespread severe weather. The sun would not have been your friend today folks!
We should be dry by tomorrow morning, but it will not remain dry for your entire Monday. With an area of low pressure sitting offshore and a northeast breeze, that’ll keep the clouds around tomorrow along with a chance of spotty showers.
It’s more likely that we’ll see those showers closer to the coast, which is also where you will find cooler temperatures. Temps will only top out in the mid-60s inland, so it’ll be a couple of degrees cooler near the coastline.
Another area of low pressure will move up from the south on Tuesday. It’ll remain offshore, but it’ll be close enough that we’ll be contending with another day of clouds and another chance of isolated showers. Once again, highs will only be in the mid-60s. Keep in mind, our average high is 73°.
The mercury will return to the mid-70s on Wednesday, then we’ll be back in the 80s as the weekend approaches.
As if Mondays and Tuesdays weren’t bad enough….am I right?
