Patrick Rockey’s Live VIPIR Forecast

Sometimes the weather seems a little backwards, doesn’t it?

On Thursday we will enjoy warmer temperatures, but also showers and thunderstorms.

Over the weekend we welcome back chilly December weather, but also plenty of sunshine.

Expect to see the clouds increase later this evening and overnight as a cold front approaches. A few showers are possible tomorrow morning, but it looks like the bulk of wet weather will hold off until tomorrow afternoon. A few storms are even possible, with an isolated severe storm not out of the question. Expect highs on Thursday in the low-to-mid 70s.

The soggy weather looks like it will linger into at least the first part of Friday before things dry out. But the mild weather will not linger. The mercury on Friday will only climb into the mid 50s.

The skies should clear late Friday afternoon and Friday evening, laying the groundwork for plenty of sunshine this weekend.

Expect high temperatures in the upper 40s on Saturday and lower 50s on Sunday.

But the cooler weather won’t stick around long. We will be back in the 60s on Monday and Tuesday and into the lower 70s by the middle of next week.
