Rowan weather: Looks like a cloudy week

Monday meets us with more clouds, a 20 percent chance of rain and a high near 52. Winds will blow from the east northeast at 9-13 mph, with gusts up to 20 mph. Tonight will be a cold 37.

It’s not enough to slow down all the budding trees and flowers, as tiny green leaves and pink blossoms pop out, along with bright yellow forsythia.

Tuesday, we can enjoy partial sun and a high near 61, with winds only around 5 mph. Tuesday night’s low will be 44.

Back to clouds Wednesday, with another 20 percent chance of rain before 11, then a few showers after 4. The high will be 58. The chance of rain goes up to 50 percent for Wednesday night, with a warm low of 54.

And Thursday will have a 50 percent chance of rain, too, with thunderstorms possible in the afternoon.  It will be 74 degrees with mostly cloudy skies. The chance of rain drops slightly, to 40 percent for Thursday night, with a low of 49.

Then we’re stuck with a 30 percent chance of rain for Friday, Friday night, Saturday and Saturday night.

Friday will be partly sunny with a high near 60 and a low of 38.

Saturday will be mostly cloudy and cooler, with a high of 52 and a low of 33.

Sunday looks like the best day of the upcoming weekend, with mostly sunny skies and a high near 57. We’ll just have to wait and see.
