We do have a few light, short-lived showers to get through this morning before a mild afternoon. No complaints on the raindrops though… We desperately need all we can get. Though, what we’ll get today won’t even make a dent in the deficit. After about 10am, the rest of Saturday looks dry for most.
Highs this afternoon will be very similar to yesterday; low to mid 70s for the interior and mid to upper 60s for the coast. Not too shabby, considering “normal” for this time of year is 66°. As the evening arrives, a chance for more showers and storms enters the picture again but it looks to stay south of the Pike. I do think there’s a better chance for storms to blow across the islands before midnight tonight. Again, most of us stay dry.
These showers and storms are along a warm front that will work into our area for tomorrow. Wet weather is within the realm of possibility, but again, it’s not a lot and it doesn’t last past the morning hours. Clouds will stick around, and it will be a bit more humid with highs in the mid to upper 70s. The timing of another backdoor cold front spared our weekend, by allowing temps to get a boost on Sunday. However, it works into the picture for Monday, dropping temps pretty dramatically.
The onshore flow will also bring in the cloud cover. So, while Sunday afternoon will feature sunshine, the front will blanket us with clouds from the NE on Sunday night. Monday’s highs will only be in the mid 60s with the coast stuck in the 50s. Still, not too far off from what we should expect this time of year.
Our next best chance at a little bit of rain will be Tuesday, as another front moves through. Still, this doesn’t look like the answer to our “mini-drought” problems, with only another 0.25″ expected (if that).
Hard to believe that Memorial Day weekend is just a week away! The “unofficial start of summer” looks to feel more like summer, as we could be in for another temp boost.
You’re stuck with me all weekend! Have a great Saturday. – Breezy
