Back from a trip out west and the pattern for the next several days is looking mainly dry and tranquil, thankfully. Having said that; this morning we are feeling the influence of a low-pressure area that went right over us overnight and is now spinning slowly off to the southeast. Clouds and patchy light rain are lingering this morning but should move slowly off to the southeast during the day...so we'll have a gradual drying and then clearing trend by afternoon from NW to SE. Tonight will bring clearing skies and cooler temps (lows in the 40s..maybe a few 30s) and then tomorrow looks beautiful.
The weekend pattern looks pretty nice though northwest flow aloft will keep it slightly cooler and drier (less humid) than average. Sunday morning could actually be chilly enough for a little frost in protected areas...but most of us should be ok. Next week will begin a breezy and warmer pattern. Our next period of active weather looks to be from Wednesday into Thursday of next week...as a couple of systems move through. Could be some strong storms and heavy rains; especially with the Thursday system, so stay tuned.
