Jon Siemianowski, Aspiring Meteorologist


If you’ve been looking for weather more indicative of spring, then you’ll like what the upcoming week will bring. A warm and pleasant start to the week will give way to a stormy and slightly cooler middle of the week which should eventually balance out to multiple days with sunshine and temperatures in the 60s for the weekend. On Monday, expect temperatures pushing the upper 70s with periods of sunshine. The same goes for Tuesday, though we will likely be warming well into the 80s and perhaps setting our highest temperature so far this year! For Wednesday and Thursday, expect cooler conditions in the 60s with rain and perhaps a thunderstorm at times. Friday into the weekend should feature a lot of sunshine and temperatures in the 60s, though Sunday will be a day to watch as some of that sunshine may be cut short by an incoming storm system. Even though there are no hazards to watch out for this week, be mindful that some of the midweek rain could come down heavy for brief periods.
