Rowan weather: A nice week ahead

This week’s forecast is pretty boring, a nice change from the last couple of weeks.

One thing to be aware of this week is air quality. It is code yellow for today, Tuesday and Wednesday, with ozone being the main problem. By Wednesday, particle pollution will also be a problem. Code yellow means unusually sensitive people will be affected and should limit outdoor activities.

We have a 30 percent chance of pop-up showers mainly before 10 a.m. It will start out mostly cloudy, then become sunny, with a high of 74. Winds will be west northwest at 5-11 mph, gusting to 18 mph.

Tonight will be mostly clear and 48, with west northwest wind at 5-9 mph.

Tuesday will be sunny and cooler, with a high of 69. Northwest wind will be at 5-9 mph. Tuesday night will be mostly clear and chilly, with a low of 46. North northwest wind will be at 3-7 mph.

It will be sunny again on Wednesday, with a high near 71 and calm wind. It will be a partly cloudy night, with a low of 54.

Thursday will be mostly sunny and 78, with a low of 56 and mostly clear skies.

Friday will be sunny and 82. The low will be 61, with partly cloudy skies.

It should be a rain-free weekend with mostly sunny skies Saturday, and a high of 84. The low will be 64, with partly cloudy skies.

Sunday will be warm, 85, with mostly sunny skies.
