Not Too Bad

Approaching low pressure will lift a warm front across the region Sunday, which will bump up temperatures by a good margin for Mother's Day on a southwest wind. Aforementioned low pressure will arrive with a cold front Monday. As a result a few showers will be likely Monday before we clear out and cool down a touch for mid-week.

Forecast Discussion

Low pressure developing in the southern plains will lift a warm front through the area Sunday. Cherish Mother's day, as it is the warmest of the forecast period. As the area of low pressure approaches, moisture will become more abundant. Expect a few showers late Sunday night and into the day Monday before an associated cold front sweeps though.

The cold front will dip south of the area and stall out, placing us in a cooler airmass. Tuesday and Wednesday are relatively nice days overall if you are OK with the below average temperatures. There is a good amount of uncertainty thereafter though. The cold front to our south may return north and produce a good amount of rain Thursday, but confidence in that is not high right now. For now, expect just a few showers Thursday, with the understanding that there will be some wiggle room. Regardless, Friday is looking dry and a touch warmer, although still below average, to close out the week.
