A little cooler for a couple days…May 9th, 2012 at 7:56 am by Jamie Jarosik under Weather
One cold front came through yesterday, and that brought in the first push of cool air. Highs climbed up into the lower 70s yesterday afternoon… so long 80s and humidity! It really was a nice day. Today, a second cold front will drop in from the north… you can see it up there on the morning surface map:
That will bring a few more weather changes today. First, it will keep temperatures running cool. We are starting off a little refreshing this morning, with the 50s and lower dew points… and afternoon highs will remain JUST below normal, as we end up in the upper 60s. Second, while we’ll start with some sun, we’ll see clouds increase a bit this afternoon. As the disturbance approaches us, it will be during peak heating hours and it might be enough to kick off a few spotty showers. The best chance will be along/north of I-70 between the hours of 2 and 7pm, but not everyone will see rain. Finally, winds will also increase as the disturbance comes through. Here’s the Futuretrac forecast for 5pm:
Tonight will be chilly behind this front, as we drop into the lower 40s! So definitely dress warmer Thursday morning. High pressure builds in for the rest of the week, and this will bring about lots of sunshine and pleasant temperatures. Thursday’s highs will be in the mid-upper 60s, and Friday we’re looking at lower 70s. We’ll end the week with a bang!… some great weather to enjoy. Next rain chance is Mother’s Day (don’t forget, it’s Sunday!) but it does not look like a wash-out. We’ll keep you posted!
