Jim's Forecast: Clouds thickening Monday with showers late

By  | 

(WITN) -- Monday
Monday will start with sun breaks and calm winds and end up with clouds across most areas. Rain showers will start to move in during the mid to late afternoon. Highs will again be in the low 60s with a southeasterly breeze at 5 to 10 mph. The rain showers will be the first of many more to come.

Tuesday & Wednesday
Two low pressure systems will make their presence felt Tuesday and Wednesday. The first, arriving Tuesday morning, will be more of a rain maker, putting down about 0.75" of rain on average. Winds will be gusty at times, but stronger winds are expected to arrive as the second low intensifies off our coast Tuesday night into Wednesday. Scattered thunderstorms will be possible Tuesday morning. Temperatures will mark another key difference between the two days, as highs on Tuesday will approach 65° while Wednesday's highs won't make it out of the mid 40s. The chilly air on Wednesday may allow a snowflake to mix in with the raindrops.

Thursday & Friday
High pressure will take over after the early week low pressure system exit the area. Skies will stay mostly sunny as we finish the week, prompting a slow warming trend that will take us into the weekend. Highs on Thursday will be in the mid 50s before reaching the upper 50s Friday afternoon.
