Beautiful Friday Night, Decent Weekend Ahead

Weather

Friday night will be nice and quiet. It will be a perfect night for a bonfire or campout. We will see partly cloudy skies and temperatures will be a bit warmer than last night as many stay in the low 60s. We could see some upper 50s down through Wyoming and McDowell counties. We will stay dry throughout the night.

Saturday will be a decent day. Overall we will still see some breaks of sun through the day that combined with winds out of the southeast will make for a fairly hot and humid day in the 80s. Any showers we do see will be isolated and short-lived.

The UV index on Saturday will be 10. That is very high and our burn times will be 20 minutes. That means it will only take 20 minutes for the sun to do damage to unprotected skin. Don’t forget your sunscreen if you are going to be out enjoying the heat.

Sunday, we will see on and off showers and storms as our moisture feed off to the south continues to provide heat and humidity for them. Some of our storm chances throughout the day may also be influenced by a stalled out frontal boundary off to our west thats stuck on the outer edge of a strong high pressure. Highs in the 80s expected. Storms aren’t all day and there will still be some dry time and sun to enjoy.

Monday, more showers and storms are possible through the afternoon hours as the heat of the day picks up. It’s likely due to high pressure we’ll see more sun than clouds which will help to further our storm coverage through the afternoon. Highs remain in the 80s.

Tuesday sees another rise of showers and isolated storms through the daytime. Most of these storms will be fueled by the sun coming through the cloud cover, so once the day ends so will most of the showers and storms. Highs will be back to the mid-80s for most.

By Wednesday, if you haven’t picked up on the trend we’re expecting rain and hot, humid conditions. Most rain will fall through the afternoon hours but a few showers in the morning can’t be ruled out. We’ll also have to be mindful of areas that have seen the most rain by now. A few places might be seeing additional run-off due to saturated ground conditions. Highs will be in the 80s again.

As our stalled out front off to the west gains some steam and begins to move closer more widespread rain will start to come alongside the normal storms fueled by just how hot it is. All that means is more of us are likely to see rain than previous days. Highs stick the 80s.

In the extended forecast, the front finally passes and begins to cool us off but we’re not exactly dry yet. Highs return to the upper 70s, but rain chances hold on for now.
