Clouds start to increase this evening. Rain chances return!

Tonight and Tomorrow

As we head into this evening, we will see those mostly sunny skies start to give way to increasing clouds. Tonight, we will hold onto that cloud cover overnight. The clouds will keep us on the warmer side with lows only getting into the mid-40s tonight. It will be soggy as scattered showers are possible after midnight.

Soggy weather continues as we head into the new workweek. A cold front will bring some scattered showers to the mountains on Monday. We will see winds blow in from the south allowing highs to be pretty warm with temperatures near 60 for most of us. It could get a little windy at times on your Monday as well, so make sure to keep an eye on any outdoor furniture and outdoor Christmas decorations.

Extended Forecast

Rain chances continue into your Tuesday, but this is when things get interesting. Tuesday's high temp will be at midnight, and temps crash throughout the day. If temperatures drop fast enough Tuesday with that moisture sticking around, we could see that rain turning into some type of wintry mix. With grounds being so warm the day before, it'll be hard to see anything stick at first if rain does transition into snow. It might be one of those systems where the higher elevations get in on the wintry precipitation and the rest of us just see rain.

After this system moves through, temperatures will drop significantly. We will see high temperatures only reaching the 40s. Clouds will start to clear Wednesday allowing some sunshine to return. That sunshine continues for your Thursday. We will not see many clouds come back till around Thursday night with another possible system coming through the mountains on Friday and Saturday. We will be keeping an eye on that.
