Week is off to a warm and dry start

The week is off to a warm and dry start, though showers and thunderstorms are possible as temperatures continue to rise through midweek, forecasters said.

Most of today should be dry, with sunny skies and high temperatures near 79 degrees. Some clouds are expected in the afternoon as temperatures begin sinking into the lower 60s. Some showers and thunderstorms are possible after 2 a.m.

Rain could continue overnight, but should peter out by 10 a.m. Tuesday. Skies are expected to become partly sunny, with high temperatures climbing to an above-average 82 degrees. Heavier clouds should roll in throughout the afternoon as low temperatures start dropping into the mid-60s. Showers could return after midnight and continue overnight, forecasters said.

Wednesday is expected to be the warmest day of the week, with high temperatures cresting at 86 degrees, nearly 10 degrees above normal. Skies should start out partly sunny, but cloudy skies and thunderstorms are possible in the afternoon. Low temperatures should drop to 66 degrees overnight.

“It looks like it will be dry Thursday and Friday,” Buttrick said.

Mostly sunny skies will arrive Thursday. High temperatures should be in the more seasonable upper 70s. Skies are expected to remain clear through the evening, with low temperatures near 60 degrees.

More sunshine will return Friday, with cloudless, sunny skies and high temperatures in the mid-70s. Clear skies should persist into the evening as low temperatures begin sinking into the upper 50s overnight.
