Sunshine to stick around for a few more days. Showers and a few thunderstorms possible Saturday and Saturday night. Severe weather still cannot be totally ruled out.
Wednesday saw lots of sunshine and cooler temperatures. Morning lows were in the 30s over most of the area. Daytime highs have stayed in the 50s. Look for another rather cold night Wednesday night. Thanks to a clear sky and light wind, temperatures will dip into the low to mid 30s over most of the area. A warming trend will begin Thursday. Expect highs to return to more normal levels in the mid to upper 60s under a partly cloudy sky. That warming trend and sunshine will linger through Friday. Lows Friday morning will dip into the low to mid 40s. Daytime highs will return to the upper 60s to low 70s.
Clouds will begin to increase Friday night as moisture surges northward from the Gulf of Mexico. That moisture will eventually lead to a few showers and thunderstorms Saturday and Saturday night. This is not very much agreement in the models on the intensity of any rain that develops. Severe weather still looks to be a slight possibility. Right now it looks like IF we see any severe weather issues, it will be over the NE quarter of the area. All severe threats will be possible. Look for the rain threat to end late Saturday night into Sunday morning. Models indicate that a good inch of rain will be possible mainly over the northeast half of the area.
We will then settle into a dry and cooler weather pattern for the rest of the seven day forecast. Expect plenty of sunshine from Sunday through Wednesday. Highs will dip into the low to mid 60s. Lows will return to the mid to upper 30s.
Average high/low for today’s date: 67/44.
