Cloud/Sun Mix, But Shower Chances Increasing

Sunshine will give way to more clouds by later this afternoon, and there will be isolated afternoon showers, increasing in coverage tonight. A rumble of thunder will also be possible. Saturday will be cloudy and cooler with more rainfall. The good news is Sunday should be much nicer with sunshine returning and milder temperatures.

Forecast Discussion

One of the hallmarks of autumn is an increasing frequency of frontal passages. We’ll see that during this forecast period, with two frontal passages expected.

The first frontal passage will be occurring tonight, and will be accompanied by showers (maybe a thundershower). Additional rainfall can be expected on Saturday as a ripple of low-pressure traverses the front. Sunday definitely looks like the nicer of the two weekend days as we expect plenty of sunshine resulting in a nice afternoon temperature boost.

Next week looks very October-like, that is, dry and nice. The exception will be a front that will come through early Tuesday. It may bring a few showers during the Monday night-Tuesday morning timeframe. Otherwise, it looks like a precipitation-free period.
