Mild St. Patrick’s Day, rain chances return for Tuesday


Little to no cloud cover will continue to be the theme for this evening, heading into the overnight hours. Couple the lack of clouds with just a light breeze, and temperatures will quickly tumble after the sun sets. Overnight lows will bottom out in the mid to upper 20s for tonight.

Although it will be a chilly start to St. Patrick’s Day on Sunday, temperatures will quickly rebound by the afternoon. Even with a mainly sunny sky overhead, temperatures may still end up being just a few degrees cooler. Low 60s for highs on Sunday look to be much more limited compared to Saturday, but widespread 50s are still expected.

Some northern areas may not break out of the upper 40s for Monday, with low to mid 50s elsewhere. Otherwise, Monday starts off mostly sunny before clouds build in late in the day. An increase in cloud cover will be the precursor to our next chance of rain.

Rain will start to edge in after midnight, with rain chances sticking around through much of Tuesday. There is the ever-so-slight chance of a brief period in the early morning where some northern and western areas could potentially see a wintry mix. Otherwise, it’s an all rain chance for most spots on Tuesday as highs get into the upper 40s and lower 50s.

Things dry out for Wednesday as more spots get back into the 50s under a mostly sunny sky. It will be even warmer for the second half of the week as highs get back into the 60, but there is another chance for some scattered showers come Saturday.
