Forecast: Shower risk grows late today into Sunday
FORECAST IN DETAIL
I hate to say it, but increasingly numerous showers this weekend may frustrate many of you with outdoor plans. Will it rain the whole time? No. I'm not talking about a washout. In fact, through early-to-mid afternoon today, it's mainly dry. But beginning mid-to-late this afternoon and especially overnight and into tomorrow, we will most likely have to dodge on-and-off showers. And the cloudy, damp weather pattern may extend into early next week.
Today (Saturday): Most of the region is dry this morning, though clouds will increase. This afternoon, scattered showers and even a few thunderstorms should develop from west to east. These showers will probably be most numerous in the evening -- so some spots may stay dry through the daylight hours. Highs head for the mid-70s. Confidence: Medium-High
Tonight: Scattered showers and thundershowers are likely overnight. I'm not anticipating widespread heavy rain, but there could be a few downpours. Amounts should range from 0.25-0.5" -- with some locally heavier totals. Rather mild temps only drop to the low 60s to near 60. Confidence: Medium-High
Keep reading for the forecast through early next week...
Tomorrow (Sunday): The likelihood of showers continues (60-70% chance) as the weak upper level weather system over us just sluggishly drifts southward. It probably won't rain all day (i.e. there should be breaks in the action), but the coverage of rain may well be more widespread than previously forecast. The clouds and rain keep high temperatures from exceeding the low 70s or so. Confidence: Medium
Tomorrow Night: Rain showers remain a possibility, especially in the evening. They should begin to decrease in coverage as the night wears on, with lows around 60. Confidence: Medium
Moist flow from the east both Monday and Tuesday will make it difficult to rid ourselves of the cloud cover and we'll also have the risk of occasional showers. However, any showers will probably be widely scattered and concentrated to our south and east. Highs both days should be in the 70s with overnight lows near 60. Confidence: Medium
