Forecast for Sunday, April 28, 2013

Expect increasing cloudiness on Sunday ahead of a weak area of low pressure moving towards our region.  A shower may develop late in the evening across the western portions of our region. Most of the precipitation should hold off until Monday. 

For Monday and Tuesday, an onshore flow will combine with a weak shortwave slowly passing through. Showers, areas of fog, and patchy drizzle will be likely. This looks to be a damp, cool period. 

Wednesday is probably going to be the driest day of the work week with some peaks of sunshine, although some of the guidance suggests the onshore flow and area of disturbed weather lingering. So a shower or some sprinkles cannot be ruled out.

For Thursday into Saturday, while there could be periods of drizzle and showers, it probably isn't going to rain during all of this time-frame and there will likely be breaks of sunshine. However, the model guidance is not yet in agreement with respect to the placement of an area of high pressure and thus some models are much drier than others and this leads to a low confidence forecast where for now I have tried to be optimistic with the sky conditions. If we can eliminate the clouds and showers completely from the forecast during any one of these days,  temperatures may have to be adjusted upwards.
