Forecast Discussion

Tonight will be very cold and windy after the passage of a strong cold front earlier today.

High pressure moves from Kansas today to Delaware by Friday. After a very cold start to Thursday, temperatures rally a little Thursday afternoon. Friday has a cold start especially in valleys, then a slightly milder afternoon.

The next front arrives from the west Saturday night. Stalls to our south Sunday and Monday before returning north as a warm front Monday night.

Clouds increase Friday afternoon. Saturday has lots of clouds with a few showers during the daytime. Saturday night through midnight Sunday look dry and cool with a mix of clouds and sun.

Timing of showers related to the return of that front from the south is difficult. Monday looks cool with lots of clouds with showers possible, more likely Monday night.

Yet another cold front from the west arrives Tuesday night, keeping showers in our forecast Tuesday. Temperatures will be warmer Tuesday.
