Watching The Weekend

Good Thursday, everyone. We have a VERY WARM weather day taking shape across the region, but everyone is focusing on the weekend and the potential for heavy rain. It’s a forecast that has some washout potential for many areas of the region.

Highs today range from 80-85 degrees and may flirt with some records. There is a chance for isolated showers and storms going up, with the best chance coming this evening into tonight. That’s when we get a cold front to move in with a broken line of strong storms.

Your tracking toys for the day…

That front puts the brakes on for Friday with showers and some thunder continuing across the southern half of the state. The northern half may dry things up a bit, but the next round of rain quickly increases from west to east during the evening.

This is ahead of a slow-moving system rolling across the state with very heavy rain into the weekend…

Many of the models continue to advertise a lot of rain…

That would be more than enough to cause some local high water issues. Temps will come way down during this time, but that cool will not last very long. As a matter of fact, temps next week may surge deep into the 80s…

That is a big time warm look for the middle and end of next week, and it may come with an increase in stormy weather.

Have a great day and take care.
