Forecast Discussion

Whatever weather you have this week won't last in a fast flow from west to east.

A strong front arrives from the west Wednesday morning. Skies become tonight. Rain arrives around midnight, lasting into Wednesday morning. Thunder is possible as well.

High temperatures Wednesday will be around or before noon followed by tumbling temperatures on gusty NW winds. Wednesday night gets quite cold.

The center of high pressure moves from Kansas tomorrow to Maryland Friday. We wake to cold temperatures Thursday, but some moderation begins Thursday afternoon. Friday will be cool with increasing clouds.

The next front moves through Saturday evening. Saturday has lots of clouds with a shower or two possible through evening. That front will be just to our south Sunday, and we catch a brief break in the rain during the daytime. The front returns north Monday. Rain returns Sunday night and lingers until Monday evening. With the front to our north next Tuesday, temperatures surge ahead of cold air returning late Wednesday.
