Warm and cloudy with a few showers on and off today

Posted: Updated:

 (WRCB) - Good Friday!  A little patchy fog this morning will give way to mostly cloudy skies and highs in the low 80s.  I do expect some spotty showers on and off through the afternoon and into tonight.  No severe weather, but we could see some brief periods of heavy rain.

Tonight, any lingering showers will taper off late, followed by overcast skies and patchy fog developing in the early morning.  The low Saturday morning will be in the mid 60s.

For Saturday, an approaching low from the west will spark a few showers here and there, but I am putting the rain chance at 30%.  If you have some fall activities planned, you will probably get away with it, but do carry an umbrella in expectation of the isolated passing shower.  The high Saturday will be in the upper 70s.

That low will pass through Sunday, allowing us to up the rain chance Sunday afternoon to 60%.  The high will reach 78, and the rain will taper off late Sunday night.

I expect Monday to be dry, but ahead of a season changing front it will also be windy with winds blowing from the southwest at 10-20 mph.  It will also be warm with an afternoon high in the low 80s Monday.

That front will move through on Tuesday bringing widespread showers and thunderstorms Tuesday morning into the afternoon.  Late Tuesday it will clear out, and MUCH cooler weather will settle in.  As a matter of fact, I expect the high Tuesday to only reach about 70.  Tuesday night it will drop to about 49 degrees.

Wednesday through the rest of next week will be perfectly fall-like.  Highs will be in the upper 60s and low 70s with lows in the 40s.  Sunshine and dry air will be the rule, also.
