Mostly Dry Evening Ahead

By Jason Samenow

Rain a better bet on Sunday

Despite the earlier forecast for numerous showers late this afternoon and evening, it now looks like most rain should hold off until later tonight. Through midnight or so, just a few sprinkles or isolated showers should be in the picture with temperatures in the 60s.

Rain looks to be a more legitimate threat late tonight and through the day Sunday. See our full forecast for more details on Sunday and the outlook through early next week.

First Friday pm, now today by the NWS, 60%-80% prob. of rain.


Tomorrow and Monday look good, but will this be a repeat of yesterday and today????

Will we receive the 2-3 inches progged. by HPC and the models?

My forecast includes rain during the next 48, but 2-3 inches ??

Since Friday, some TV mets have been calling for more rain today than Saturday.

The big issue is all this darned raw cloudiness. My earlier post said that spring has been 15% nice weather [chiefly last weekend and that nice Sunday during the Cherry Blossom Festival] and 85% windy, cloudy or wet, raw weather. Wind has been a bigger problem than rain, since "March" began ca. Valentines Day and is still dragging on as of this weekend. It's so remarkable, considering how gloomy this spring has been, that they continue to talk "drought" around here.
