We’re battling some low level clouds to start Thursday. All the rain from yesterday has moved east; no need for wipers and umbrellas this morning. This afternoon, dry air chews up the clouds and we’ll be partly to mostly sunny with highs still on the cool side in the upper 50s. Clouds will keep thinning allowing for a mostly clear but cold night with lows in the upper 30s by Friday morning. Sky gazers, we have an event for you! The Geminid Meteor Shower will peak tonight into Friday. Skies will clear just in time for you to get a glimpse but it’ll be a cold show looking east just after midnight. Friday through Sunday we see a gradual warm up as highs jump from 67° to 75° by the end of the weekend. While rain will be greatly limited, a few showers may be generated in our western counties late Sunday ahead of our next cold front. Current trends push a strong cold front through the region Monday morning into early Tuesday; with it will come the chance for widespread showers and thunderstorms. Right now it is too soon to discuss severe weather but threat will have to be monitored. There has been consistence in our computer models making this front a quick mover with it exiting by lunch Tuesday. Stay tuned!

Be safe and have a great Thursday!
