Updated Saturday, April 18, 2015 at 10:00 AM...
After a very warm end to the workweek yesterday, it will be about 10 degrees cooler today.... however, temperatures will still be well above average. Expect a good deal of sunshine today with a few more clouds building in this afternoon and evening. Highs will be in the upper 60s to low 70s. Also, due to our dry conditions, a RED FLAG WARNING for Juneau, Jackson, Monroe & Adams Co. from 11am-7pm. Burning is NOT advised.
A strong area of low pressure that has been sitting almost stationary over the western High Plains the past few days... fill finally start to slowly shift east/northeast closer to our area tonight. Showers will become likely late tonight.
Sunday will bring a good chance of rain showers and some isolated t-storms region-wide as the the low tracks closer and hooks up with a disturbance to the north. Temperatures will cool into the upper 50s to low 60s for highs.
Looking Ahead... Temps get even cooler for next week with highs mainly in the low-mid 50s and lows slipping into the low-mid 30s. The slow moving low will creep by to our south early in the week, so there's a small chance for a few showers Monday and Tuesday. With temps near freezing at night, a few snowflakes could even try to mix in at times in some spots. It looks mainly dry Wednesday through Friday, but temps will still be a bit below average.
Enjoy your Saturday! -Michelle Poedel
