Weekend heats up with occasional T-storms — Here’s when to watch for rain



1. Warming temperatures continue this weekend
–After a somewhat cooler start with lows around 50° Saturday, the afternoon heats up. Highs will be around 80° Saturday afternoon. Saturday night stays mild with lows in the lower to mid-60s. Sunday will feel like a summer day with highs approaching the mid-80s!

2. Occasional showers or storms both Saturday & Sunday
–There will be a couple windows where you may encounter a few showers or an isolated thunderstorm this weekend. One of those will be Saturday morning. A warm front begins lifting through the area Saturday morning. This will try to touch off some spotty showers in the morning. Saturday afternoon also may have a few hit-or-miss showers or storms as warmer air surges into the area. These would be the pop-up variety like we usually see through the summer. They would be isolated in coverage and the afternoon is not expected to be a washout. However, if you encounter one of these isolated showers/storms, heavy rain will be possible under them.

Saturday night looks quiet and Sunday gets off to a quiet start. We will have a breezy, partly sunny day Sunday. Once temperatures reach the mid-80s, some pop-up showers and storms are possible. The best chance to see those would be the late-afternoon and into the evening.

3. Nice kickoff to the workweek
–High pressure will build into the area Sunday night into Monday. This will bring an end to the risk for showers for a few days. Both Monday and Tuesday are looking dry. The next chance for rain after the weekend doesn’t arrive until late-Tuesday into Wednesday. The partly sunny skies will be accompanied by cooler temperatures compared to the weekend highs.
