Weekend Weather: Warm, Mostly Sunny And Dry

A small weather system will cross the area today and bring clouds and just a chance for a few afternoon or evening showers. I'm not expecting much in the way of total rainfall. Some areas could see no rain at all. The highest risk of showers will be from about 2 to 7 p.m., after which time skies will clear. That's going to set us up for a very nice weekend.

I wrote yesterday that the last time we had a dry weekend was back on St Patrick's Day and it does look like we will do it again this weekend. Temperatures are going to be quite mild both Saturday and Sunday, getting into the 60s and 70s. On Sunday, a warm front will approach the area and this will increase the cloud cover. The brightest part of the day will be in the morning. Moisture will arrive from the west Sunday night and Monday with a couple of showers.

Very warm air will likely be here on Monday, which right now looks like it could get into the 70s and possibly the 80s. This all depends on that warm front moving far enough north to usher in this type of temperature pattern. I don't expect to last, as by Tuesday and Wednesday temperatures will return to normal, but it looks like our first taste of summer and first 80-degree day could occur on Monday.
