Unsettled weather for the week….As we move through our Monday, expect more clouds than sun across the area as a front stalls to our south and high pressure builds in from the north. While a stray sprinkle or shower is possible Monday, most areas will be dry. High temperatures will only reach the lower 60s, due in part to a breezy northeast wind between 10 and 20 mph. That northeast wind will stick around a couple of days, and combined with a full moon, we could see some nuisance to minor tidal flooding in a few areas, so keep that in mind. High temperatures will be in the mid 60s on Tuesday. We’ll see mostly cloudy skies by then as well. However, a few more showers will move in late in the afternoon and evening all ahead of a cold front that will move through the area Wednesday. Now, on Wednesday, we’ll see a good chance of rain and possibly a thunderstorm or two as our temperatures rise into the low and mid 70s. Not as much rain is expected on Thursday. Then, next weekend, we’ll see drier weather, just in time for Halloween! Have a good week.
