Today's Forecast

Today's Forecast Image
  • 58°
  • 47°

It's an all too familiar scenario for us, but once again we're finding ourselves dealing with gray, cool, and damp weather today as a large storm system slowly settles in from the north. Look for a few brief, light rain showers this morning and then larger batches of rain through the midday and afternoon. High temperatures will only be in the upper 50s to around 60 degrees which is more than ten degrees cooler than the seasonal average. Light showers will taper off later tonight and Wednesday looks quite a bit drier than today behind the departing storm system. Sunshine will slowly break through the clouds Wednesday with just a slight chance that a couple of small showers will redevelop late in the day with high temperatures in the lower 60s. Thursday looks like perhaps the most pleasant day of the week with bright sunshine through the day and high temperatures will be around 70 degrees. There may be a few morning showers Friday and again later Saturday afternoon or evening with high temperatures in the lower 70s. Sunday and Memorial Day Monday will feature at least a chance of scattered showers and thunderstorms, but there will also be enough sunshine during those day to warm our temperatures to around 70 degrees.
