WEATHER BLOG: Rain Showers Expected This Week
That easterly wind got us again Sunday.
Saturday’s front is now to our south, but the combination of it leaving us and a new high pressure off to the north has kept an easterly wind around all day for us. In this kind of pattern, cooler air and more moisture is brought in off the ocean and Bay to create the morning fog/drizzle and a lot of lingering afternoon clouds. The winds will remain out of the east Sunday night, creating a new round of fog and maybe drizzle. Unlike Sunday, an approaching front will try to mix up our weather pattern Monday afternoon. However, this new front will have a whole new round of clouds with it. So expect clouds to mix with some sunshine before they take over again Monday night.
Scattered showers and thunderstorms will hold off until Tuesday, then continue into Wednesday. During this time, temperatures will jump to the mid 70s. But just as this storm tries to move away Wednesday night, another one will move in from the south. That one will have another round of scattered showers and thunderstorms with it. It’s looking like our best chance at some measurable rain between these two storms – some still needed measurable rain.
Cooler air will rush into the state for the end of the week. Highs will drop back into the 60s.
