Forecast Last Updated at Monday, October 21, 2019 at 5:18AM

Dry Daytime; Wet Overnight

There will be a lot of clouds around today, although the weather should remain dry until later tonight. Showers return, mainly after midnight and continue until about midday Tuesday. Clearing occurs thereafter, and Wednesday through Thursday look like the weather picks of the week. More rain returns by late in the week or next weekend, although timing that remains difficult.

Forecast Discussion

A cold front is scheduled to pass through here on Tuesday. Ahead of the front today, a rather moist, southeasterly wind flow will keep considerable cloudiness around, but generally dry weather is anticipated through early tonight.

Showers return, mostly after midnight and continuing through Tuesday morning until the front gets past us by midday or early afternoon. We expect rapid clearing thereafter, and clear and cooler weather for Tuesday night through Thursday.

There remains considerable model consternation revolving around the timing of our next frontal arrival for late next week and next weekend. Present indications suggest a slower frontal progression may be more plausible, so with a bit of luck, we may be able to salvage Friday en route to a more unsettled upcoming weekend. We’ll be able to fine-tune this as we get closer.
