PM Update: A Few Showers Before Sunny Sunday

By Ian Livingston

Partly sunny Saturday, a scattered shower or storm

Mostly cloudy skies ruled the day and that continues into tonight. But the clouds should not lead to all that much rain, just a few showers. A south wind behind a warm front that passed through early today has brought temperatures and humidity levels up a bit. Highs that mainly reached the low-to-mid 70s will only slowly fall back this evening.

Through Tonight: Looks like a mild evening for any outdoor plans, with temperatures staying in the 60s till late in the night. We stand a chance of a few showers and stay mostly cloudy throughout, which combined with higher dew points helps us stay warmer than recently. Lows range between the mid-50s to around 60.

Tomorrow (Saturday): Some morning showers are possible before skies trend partly sunny. There's a small chance of an afternoon storm, but moisture should be rather limited, so nothing too widespread is expected. Highs head for the mid-and-upper 70s. Occasionally gusty south winds through midday shift to come out of the west and northwest behind the front.

Southeast Drought Study: A new study from Columbia University says the recent Southeast drought is not because of climate change, but rather from a growing population. After studying historical data, computer models and other drought indicators, the researchers found the drought to be fairly typical when compared to others in the past.
