Rain Chances Through The Weekend

Aug8blog

NOWCAST THROUGH LATE MORNING:
Mostly cloudy with periods of showers and thunderstorms.
6am: Mostly Cloudy, Showers/Storms 70°
8am: Mostly Cloudy, Showers/Storms 71°
10am: Mostly Cloudy, Showers/Storms 77°

A WET FRIDAY:
Our highest chances for widespread rain in many weeks are in line through tonight. A slow-moving area of low pressure heading out of the Central Plains will tap into abundant Gulf moisture, providing us with numerous showers and thunderstorms. Locally heavy downpours are possible with the strongest storms. A widespread 3/4″ to 1″ of rain is likely for much of the region by Saturday morning, rain that would put a nice dent in our ongoing Moderate Drought. Highs will be cooler thanks to more clouds, topping out in the mid 80s.

YARD SALE WEEKEND:
Things stay unsettled as Friday’s low slowly pushes east Saturday. We’ll continue with a chance for scattered showers and storms Saturday with just a stray thundershower chance Sunday if you’re out hunting bargains along US 127. Highs will be seasonably warm in the upper 80s with a good dose of humidity both days.

NEXT WEEK:
Our rain chances back off toward the middle of the week as the weather pattern quiets down. Highs will reach the mid to upper 80s with lows mainly in the 60s.
