Forecast: Bad Now, Better Weekend

By Camden Walker

Although Sunday Semi-Showery

WeatherCam*Allow extra time this morning; never cross flooded roads*

The end of your week starts soaking wet. But sunshine starts the weekend before scattered showers creep back into picture late Saturday and once again on Sunday.

TODAY

AM rain; mostly cloudy p.m. Mid 60s. Rain is likely this morning, which may be heavy, particularly north of town. Take that umbrella! The rain should taper off in the afternoon but it will stay cloudy. Thanks to these clouds and a cool wind from the north, it will not get very warm. High temperatures will only reach the mid 60s.

It will remain mostly cloudy until about midnight, after which clearing is likely. Most spots will dip toward 50 degrees as winds slacken.

Confidence: Medium-High

Keep reading for the forecast through early next week.

TOMORROW

Mostly sunny. Clouds increase late. Mid 70s. For the most part, it will be a simple, sunny day. This is good news for all of the graduation festivities at local universities. During the afternoon, a few clouds will probably start rolling in but any rain should hold off until after dark. High temperatures will be in the oh so pleasant middle 70s. Westerly winds will pick up from time to time, up to 15 mph.

Overnight, skies are mostly cloudy with a slight chance (30%) of showers. Low temperatures will settle in the middle 50s. A light westerly breeze around 10 mph will remain perceptible.

SUNDAY

Mostly cloudy with a chance of showers. Near 70. An upper level disturbance will ripple through the region triggering a 50% chance of showers, especially during the afternoon. It will neither rain everywhere nor for long periods of time but pack the umbrella.

Overnight, lower 50s (mid to upper 40s suburbs) will cool us off under gradually clearing skies.

A LOOK AHEAD

Gorgeous times for Monday with mid 70s and sunny skies. Confidence: Medium-High

Mild again on Tuesday, in the mid 70s, but more clouds and a chance of rain late. Confidence: Medium
