More chances for rain this week, temperature roller coaster to end winter

Weather Blog

While we may be starting a new work-week, we’re continuing the talk of scattered showers.

For the most part, this week is forecast to be unsettled.

Sunday is expected to be cool and damp with off-and-on sprinkles.

Same story for Monday.

Tuesday morning will see any lingering showers exit the region as temperatures climb a good 15 degrees or so from Monday’s highs.

Wednesday might actually be dry, but don’t get used to it as more rain is expected Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

Now, what about this temperature roller coaster?

Sunday, we’ll struggle to get out of the 40s over the region. We should gain a few degrees for Monday’s highs, but it will only barely getting into the 50s.

Tuesday’s highs are expected to get into the mid 60s, dropping into the lower 60s on Wednesday.

Thursday and Friday should be in the 70s, but again…the chances for rain are increasing during this period.

We’ll end the week flirting with the 60 degree mark by Friday.

So, “scattered showers” will be the phrase of the week. We’re not anticipating any flooding concerns as the rain that does fall should be mostly on the light side – basically, a nuisance-type of showery week.

Also, we will officially say goodbye to winter this week as the sun will cross over the celestial equator into the northern hemisphere on Thursday at approximately 11:50 p.m.

Pollen forecasts for Sunday are in the Moderate stage for trees, so if you find yourself doing some extra sneezing, that’s likely why.

I’ll have more on the forecast tonight on WFXR News First at Ten. Hope to see you then!
