Watch for rain and patchy fog on Monday morning commute

Wow, we warmed up quite decently on Sunday to 74°! It won't be as frigid for Monday morning - or this week in general for that matter.

We'll wake up Monday morning to temps near 60°. We could have some patchy fog, and we'll likely see some scattered showers and thunderstorms in the morning. The severe threat looks low, and rain amounts look low too (maybe a quarter-inch or so). Most of the rain will finish by early afternoon.

Cool-ish, mostly clear weather takes over from Tuesday through Thursday. A reinforcing shot of cool air arrives quietly on Wednesday.

We won't have any freezes this week. However, the Northshore could perhaps have some patchy frost Wednesday and Thursday mornings (lows will be in the mid-30s).

Our next storm system and cold front move in late Friday into Saturday. At this point, this one looks somewhat strong with some heavy storms, perhaps up to 2-4 inches of rain. We'll keep you updated with specifics through the week.

Rain should end late Saturday, and Sunday will bring colder air and windy conditions.
