A Storm or Two This Afternoon


Today as temperatures heat up into the low 80s once again we could see a few storms crop up by this afternoon. The combination of daytime heating and the presence of a little extra moisture moving into the region will provide the fuel for these. No severe weather is expected, and very few will end up seeing one of these storms but they will be around!

Tuesday, showers, and storms are still possible through much of the day with temperatures remaining above average. We’ll have more hours of dry conditions than rain but a good day to keep the rain gear handy just in case. Much of the area will see temps in the mid to upper 80s and low 90s. Lows trending warmer as well in the low 60s.

Wednesday will still see a threat of a shower or two around the area with afternoon temperatures remaining above average with many seeing the mid-80s. Showers will be scattered with a rumble of thunder possible as well. Overnight lows sinking back to the low 60s and upper 50s for the higher elevations. Hopefully, we clear up enough for the Super Flower Blood Moon for the early morning hours. The partial eclipse starts at 5:44 am.

Thursday will see more in the way of dry times but still a risk of an isolated shower and hot with afternoon temps reaching the mid-80s. We’ll see our shower risk diminish into Thursday night with overnight lows again dropping back to the low 60s.

Friday will see more sun than showers in the early parts of the day but rain chances increase into the late afternoon and evening as a cold front brings rain, thunder, and cooler temps our way. Highs in the upper 70s. Rain sticks around into the overnight hours into Saturday morning with lows dipping back into the 50s.

Saturday will start rainy and cooler but showers will diminish into the afternoon to a more scattered chance. We’ll have a mix of sun, clouds, and leftover showers and it’ll feel cooler than the last few days with afternoon temps in the upper 60s and low 70s. Overnight lows feeling comfy in the low to mid-50s.

In the extended forecast, hot but unsettled weather sticks around. After Monday, we see a shift in the jet stream which will line us up to see a few rounds of rain as quick-moving disturbances roll over us into the end of May. None of these look to bring widespread rain. This looks to be a typical summer-time pattern with afternoon showers and a few rumbles of thunder.
