Several chances for rain this week, turning sharply colder by weekend

The active weather pattern remains in place this week with several more chances for rain and a big change by the weekend as sharply colder temperatures are expected.

Showers and thunderstorms will wind down Tuesday morning. We’ll likely see a lull throughout most of the day with additional showers and thunderstorms developing Thursday afternoon and evening. There is a low-end severe threat with large hail possible in any stronger storm that develops. High temperatures will feel more like late spring with 70s expected.

Wednesday we will catch a break as much of the day will be dry with high temperatures in the 60s. Another round of rain, and heavier, will arrive Wednesday night and continue throughout the day and night on Thursday before wrapping up by Friday morning.

In all, 2-4″ of rain will be possible across most of the ABC 6 Weather First area by Sunday morning.

After another day in the 60s on Thursday, a strong cold front will slide through Friday morning. Temperatures will go from the 60s early Friday morning to the 40s by lunchtime.

Another system could bring a rain, snow mix to the area on Saturday and Saturday night as temperatures remain cold in the 30s and 40s.
