Today's Weather: The Sunshine Returns

A cold front sliced through the region Monday evening, bringing showers, thunderstorms and even some hail. High pressure is now building in from Canada and will provide us with several beautiful days.

Initially, the air will be cool, but eventually will get onto the warmer side of the high pressure area and readings will become warmer than average. I expect temperatures Tuesday afternoon to stay in the mid 50s. It'll be a little bit breezy at times.

Overnight will be chilly, with temperatures down in the 30s. There may be a touch of frost in the colder valley locations. Some late-night cloudiness may also help to keep readings from really getting very cold. I can’t rule out a shower.

On Friday, a warmer weather system approaches with a few showers. Temperatures are going to be well into the 70s.

It looks as though that system on Friday should move safely eastward on Saturday, leaving us with an absolutely stunning day. I think the sunshine wins out the day and temperatures will be within a few degrees of 70.

Late in the weekend, we'll have to watch and see whether some cooler air from Canada brings a few showers, or if the warm air lingers.

On a side note, I am quite confident frost is done for the season once this midweek chance passes. This weekend, you can put in your warmer weather plants. I will likely plant tomatoes.
