A Slight Chance of Evening Showers Tonight
More Rain Friday Night through Saturday Night

Good evening… it was a day filled with clouds, although a few of us saw a few peeks at sunshine. A few of us even saw a few light showers or sprinkles. The cause is a disturbance tracking by to our south. Showers with this feature will die out as we head into the mid-evening hours.
Farther west, we are watching developing storm system that will bring a wet weekend to much of the area.
For tonight, look for a few hit and miss showers early on. They will die out leaving cloudy skies behind for the rest of the night. Look for lows to range from the lower to middle 30s in the north to the middle and upper 30s in the south.
As we head into Friday, look for clouds to continue. As moisture ahead of that system starts getting pushed northward into the area it could generate an isolated shower or two during the late afternoon. Moisture will really ramp up over the area tomorrow evening. As a result, look for widespread rain to develop. It will be relatively mild tomorrow as highs warm into the 50s. Lows tomorrow night will hold mainly in the 40s.
By Saturday, that storm system will begin to cross the area. As a result, look for rain to continue. There could even be a few claps of thunder. The good news is today’s data suggests the threat for severe weather will stay south of the area. Look for highs in the upper 40s to middle 50s.
Rainfall totals with this next storm appear to range from .75” to 1.25”. This could cause additional rises on area rivers, which could lead to minor flooding. If you have interests on area rivers, be sure to check later forecasts.
Looking ahead… that storm system will begin to exit the region Sunday. We could still see a few lingering morning showers, but they should quickly exit the region. It will be a cloudy and breezy day Sunday. Look for highs in the middle 40s to lower 50s. Northwest winds will ramp up Sunday, with gusts approaching 35 mph in open areas.
Dry weather returns Monday under sunny skies. A weak disturbance will try to crank out a shower or two Tuesday, with another slight chance of showers returning next Thursday and Friday.
Temperatures through the period will hold manly in the upper 40s to middle 50s.
Have a great night! –Cory Malles
