Tracking showers and storms this Monday morning, as a cold front stretches itself across the state! Rain will be with us off and on through 1 p.m., clearing from west to east. Our highs today will be tricky, as we have already started out in the middle 70s, but I still think some afternoon sun could bounce us back into the lower 70s, which is seasonal for this time of the year. Rainfall amounts should be less than a 1/2″ in most locations.

Tuesday looks to be our “best day of the week” as sunshine and dry weather will hold all day, after a chilly start! A cold-core low will be dropping into the state on Wednesday. This will create unsettled conditions again, with added cloud cover and areas of rain at times. This WILL BE our first true taste of autumn this year. This low is also cut off from the main jet stream, which means it has little guidance to move from one place to another. This could keep us unsettled for several days with limited sunshine, isolated showers, and unseasonably cooler temperatures!
