THE WEATHER REPORT:

"The Weather Report" is a conversation about the forecast. It's how we all talk about how the conditions affect our plans."

We had a nice Mother’s Day weekend with sunshine and mild temperatures. That was great. This week looks like showers possible right on through Thursday.

It’s still better than a snow storm coming in to drop 5 inches or more, but we’re all ready for a stretch of clear skies.

Temperatures stay warm enough for this time of year. Look for low to mid 50’s until Thursday with precipitation. Temps reach the low 60’s once the sun comes out Friday and we get an all clear in the forecast - but a chance of showers is back Saturday and Sunday.

Wind is not going to be a big factor, although it will pick up on occasion here and there.

After being limited on what we can do, getting out for some fresh air right now - and maybe some exercise - is a healthy thing to do for young and old. The rain kind of puts a damper on a lot of outdoor activities, but there are some chances this week - especially as we head to the end of the week.

This is the time of year when we make vacation plans and do a little traveling if possible. Follow us and keep up with the weather on a daily basis and an hourly time frame. Everything factors in depending on what your plans are. If you’re going on the road for a trip or just around the region, you’ll want to know what to expect.

Get out and stay safe. Plan for changes in the conditions this week as we see scattered showers during the week.
