We’re entering a mildly unsettled weather pattern, with a gradual increase in cloudiness, warmth, and upper-level winds, carrying minor disturbances that may trigger periods of light showers starting early Tuesday morning and continuing off and on through the day. The upper flow, moving from west to east, has effectively cut off the extreme cold-air source in the northern U.S., so temperatures will continue to modify to near- or above-average levels this week. Tonight’s lows will fall to the middle 40s in most cases, with highs rebounding to the middle to upper 60s Tuesday. Rain totals are anticipated to remain very light, generally less than a quarter-inch. The stream of clouds and showers will be situated over the region through the end of the week; occasional showers and a few breaks of clearer sky will alternate for the next few days, with another spike in rain potential Friday.
