PM Update: Showers on the Way Out for Evening?
A cloudy and sometimes showery weekend upcoming
A sometimes gusty south wind helped temperatures climb into the mid-70s this afternoon even though the area was socked in with clouds through mid-afternoon. A few showers moved through during the early morning and again this afternoon. Though the risk is there for a thunderstorm or two through early evening, as with many recent west-to-east-moving systems, this one's just not packing a lot of punch after crossing the mountains.
Through Tonight: During the late afternoon into early evening, a couple showers and an isolated thunderstorm are possible along with some breaks in the clouds, but for the most part disruptions to the commute and evening activities should be minimal if at all. Late evening we trend mostly cloudy with just a slight chance of a passing shower. Temperatures won't fall too far; most places should drop to lows within a few degrees of 60.
Tomorrow (Saturday): More clouds and showers are likely Saturday as cloudy skies limit highs to the upper 60s to mid-70s. There may be a bit of a lull in shower activity during the morning, but by midday showers should be returning to the area with the chance of an afternoon thunderstorm. Rain through early evening could add up to between .1"-.25", with higher totals possible where heavier showers or storms occur.
Al Roker News: In case you have not heard, Al Roker is picking up a new show on The Weather Channel (acquired by NBC Universal last year). The show, "Wake Up With Al," will be co-hosted with Stephanie Abrams and is set to air daily at 6 a.m.
