First Alert Forecast: few showers Thursday; warming trend ahead

A disturbance to our south is causing our increase in cloud cover today and is also allowing for light showers to pass through the area... Anticipate the potential for a few showers throughout the afternoon and evening before clouds begin to clear west to east into the overnight period. High temperatures will only reach the mid-upper 40s this afternoon!

As high pressure builds back over the region into the end of the work week/beginning of the weekend, we’ll see plenty of sunshine Friday and Saturday. Temperatures will still be well-below average, however, waking up to the low 30s and topping out in the low-mid 50s. High clouds stream into the region by Sunday ahead of our next disturbance that will keep a mix of sun and clouds in the forecast into the start of next week. Rain is not anticipated with this system and temperatures will be on an upward trend, taking us back to average by the middle of next week!
