Next week at this time also appears to be fairly quiet. We will start off the new work week warming up into the upper 40s and 50s on Monday. Monday night a cold front will push through bringing in some cooler air for Tuesday.

Late next week, there is potential for another storm system to impact the area. Confidence is low on impacts and timing due to models not agreeing on what may happen. One of our long range models is showing the system coming in Thursday night into Friday, and the other is keeping us dry. At this time, we are going to monitor developments and keep us dry (for now) on the 8 day forecast. However, you will want to keep checking back for updates.

Taking Action: No action is needed at this time! Keep checking back for updates.
