Chief Meteorologist Patrick Rockey’s First Warning Forecast

After rotten weekend weather, it’s great to see sunshine and 70s on Monday. But an approaching cold front will bring big weather changes for the rest of the workweek.

Tuesday will bring showers, possibly thunderstorms, and cooler temperatures. Clouds will increase overnight, but most of us should be dry for the morning commute. Showers and possibly thunderstorms will move in from the northwest through the morning and into the afternoon.

Most of the rain will be gone by sunset and the skies will clear as we head toward Wednesday morning. Temperatures will fall from the mid 60s on Tuesday to the mid 50s on Wednesday.

And then we are in for a long stretch of sunny, cool days. Expect highs in the upper 50s and the lower 60s with plenty of sunshine from Thursday through Sunday.

And just in time for you to head back to work on Monday we will warm back up to around 70!
