Forecast Discussion 4/29 4:13 PM

Projected Precipitation Saturday-Monday

We’re enjoying a nice clear afternoon and tonight will be mostly clear across our area. This will make for great viewing conditions as the International Space Station moves over the horizon at 8:09 p.m. (be sure to look in the WSW direction). Temperatures will be milder tonight, with lows in the 50s.

The sky will become partly cloudy tomorrow as a moist southerly flow continues over our area. This may fuel a stray thunderstorm or shower late in the day and tomorrow night. We will have a better chance for scattered thunderstorms on Saturday and some may be on the strong side. High temperatures will be in the 80s.

The good thing is that some areas may be able to dodge the rain drops to start off the weekend. By Sunday all areas will be experiencing rain as a cold front moves in. This front will be a slow mover, with the potential for heavy rain and thunderstorms late Sunday, Sunday night, and on Monday. Some of the storms Saturday and late on Sunday may be strong or severe. The front will be stalling across our area which will mean additional rain late Monday, Monday night, and on Tuesday. By Wednesday the front will be shifting south of our area as an upper trough swings into the region. This will keep our sky rather cloudy and provide some cooler weather. Highs will struggle to reach 70 next Wednesday, with lows back in the 40s. Be sure to join us tonight for more weather details!
