Pinpoint Weather: Not as warm Monday with more clouds and a few showers likely

Weather Blog

A weak front will continue to fall apart across our region. In the meantime, just a few showers will be possible with the heating of the day. Most areas will stay dry.

This evening, high pressure to our north will begin to influence our weather a bit more. Easterly winds will steer in a cool, moist air flow off of the Atlantic. This will introduce more cloud cover, a slightly cooler air mass, and the chance for a few showers tonight into Monday. Some spotty, light rain may be around for some during the morning commute.

With more clouds and a chance for showers Monday and Tuesday, temperatures will be held to the 70s across more of the region versus the 80s we’ve seen this weekend.

Rain chances increase with each passing day for the first half of the work week. Low-level moisture gradually builds in across the region thanks to winds off the Atlantic Monday. Also, upper-level winds will help to bring in additional moisture out of the south, increasing rain chances Tuesday and especially Wednesday.

A strong cold front crosses our region Wednesday. With that said, isolated to scattered showers are forecast for Monday and Tuesday. Showers, along with a few storms, will become more numerous Wednesday ahead of the front.

Behind the front, sunny skies return! Despite ample sunshine, the cooler air mass behind the front will make for a nice fall finish to the work week with highs in the low and mid 70s.

In the mountains, temperatures will only hit 60s for highs, Thursday, then drop into the 40s overnight.
