Much quieter this afternoon - WRBL

Much quieter this afternoon

Posted: Updated:

A few showers linger in our eastern counties this morning. They'll join the rest of the showers and push east of the area by mid-morning. Sunshine will return in full force this afternoon with highs in the low to mid 70s, a far cry from the mid 80s we saw earlier this week. Temperatures moderate a bit tomorrow before our next system arrives Sunday.

Sunday's system won't bring severe weather, but it will bring another chance of rain for much of the day. The clouds and rain will hold temperatures in the mid 70s. The system will also leave enough moisture to spark off an isolated shower/thunderstorm each day next week.

Another trough will eject out of the Rockies and bring us another chance for showers/storms next Thursday night/Friday morning. Sound familiar? Up! It's almost the same setup, except displaced a few hundred miles north. We'll keep an eye on it as we head through the weekend and in to next week.  

FRIDAY:  Few showers east. Clearing later today. High: 74

Friday Night: Clear and cool. Lows near 50

SATURDAY:  Mostly sunny. High: 78

Saturday Night: Mostly clear. Lows near 55

SUNDAY:  Becoming mostly cloudy with a few showers around. High: 77

TUESDAY:  Isolated showers in the afternoon. High: 85

Tuesday Night: Mostly clear. Lows near 65.

WEDNESDAY: Isolated showers in the afternoon. Highs near 86.
