FORECAST IN DETAIL
Though we've experienced many stormy weekdays in recent weeks, the weekends have, by-and-large, been tranquil. Not so this weekend. A cold front is likely to fire up showers and thunderstorms today, some of which could be severe. Tomorrow's weather will be less volatile even if we can't rule out a few showers at times. Both days will feature temperatures in the 80s, with higher humidity today than tomorrow.
Today (Saturday): In between periods of rain and storms, it will be mostly cloudy, muggy day, with highs in the mid-to-upper 80s. Showers and storms are likely to affect the area in two batches. One batch of showers and thunderstorms moving in from the west will impact the metro region at times during the morning and possibly into early afternoon.
A second round of storms will probably develop (60% chance) late in the afternoon and early evening as the cold front pushes through. These storms could be strong, with heavy rain and damaging winds a possibility.Confidence: Medium
Coverage: Scattered to Widespread
Tonight: Most thunderstorm activity is likely to wind down after 7 p.m. or so. The rest of the night will be partly cloudy and pleasant, with lows in mid-to-upper 60s (suburbs-city). Confidence: Medium-High
Keep reading for the forecast into early next week...
Tomorrow (Sunday): Father's Day will very likely be the better of the two weekend days. Expect partly sunny skies and lower humidity than Saturday, with highs in the low-to-mid 80s. A few showers could pivot through the region, especially in the afternoon, but odds are low (just 1-in-4). It will be breezy, with a wind from the north at 10-20 mph. Confidence: Medium-High
Tomorrow Night: Partly cloudy and seasonable, with lows 64-68 (suburbs-city). Confidence: Medium-High
The start to the work week looks good. Both Monday and Tuesday should be partly to mostly sunny (and dry), with highs in the low-to-mid 80s, and overnight lows in the 60s.
