Gradual Warming, Then Rain…Saturday Evening Update 7:25p.m.

7 Day -SHELTON STATE Forecast - Offset Lows - PM.png

Good Saturday Evening! Many likely woke up this morning surprised by how much we changed temperature wise from yesterday. Temperatures remained cool throughout the day: tonight, plan on a very chilly evening with lows for most dropping below freezing. Sunday, we will be slightly warmer as high pressure ridging slowly breaks down, winds shift, and warmer air from the Gulf starts to flow back in. That change will have some bigger impacts on our weather for next work week.

Monday, a developing low pressure system to our west will lift dew-points that will allow for shower activity for much of the day. Rain should be light to moderate. Tuesday, increased forcing and instability will provide more rain, as well as a few thunderstorms. Wednesday, with the arrival a cold front, will see the greatest chance for storms. Models are lining up for a chance for some severe weather Wednesday evening. Sufficient shear and instability look to be present to provide the opportunity for hail, damaging winds, as well as the opportunity for a quick, spin-up tornado. We will continue to watch Wednesday closely for any changing details.

After the showers and storms Wednesday, temperatures cool down again. Clear skies and cooler weather will be the story for up to the end of the work week; as we head into the weekend though, Saturday will have increasing clouds as we start to see our next rain maker form.
