First Alert Forecast: Spring-like temperatures ahead!
Gradually Warmer Through The Week Ahead (Source: WLBT)

Our dry & sunny conditions have carried over into the start of the work week! High pressure out to our east will allow for sunshine the rest of our Monday as high temperatures top out around 70°. As we carry through the rest of the week, both our morning lows and our afternoon highs will be gradually increasing... Eventually, we’ll wake up near 60° and top out near 80° by the middle and end of the work week.

We’ll notice a steady increase in the cloud cover in this time frame as well. Although a stray shower can’t be ruled out, those isolated chances will be slightly more impressive Friday and Saturday. As we wrap up the weekend, however, we’re going to be tracking a low-pressure system that will bring us our next chance of showers and storms. Timing on the rain chances looks to be Sunday into Monday and a few strong storms look possible, but as we’re still a week out, be sure to stay tuned for frequent updates!
