Get Your Umbrellas Out!

Get ready for a chilly and damp start to our weekend!  A center of low pressure will slide to our south and unfortunately we’ll stay on the cold side of the front.  A steadier rain will move into the picture late Friday night and during at least the first half of Saturday.  A few showers will linger into Saturday afternoon.  Some areas may see over half an inch of precipitation.

High temperatures on Saturday will be 15 to 20 degrees below average, with the mercury struggling to reach the upper 40s!  Our wind will be sustained out of the east at 15 to 25mph with even higher gusts.  That will make it feel even chillier.

Beyond that, every day in the 7 Day Outlook has a chance for precipitation.  Scattered showers are in the forecast for late Sunday and during the first half of Monday.  Tuesday through next Friday will bring the threat for on-and-off showers and thunderstorms as we enter an unsettled pattern.  On the bright side, temperatures on those four days will climb into the 70s!

Based on our model data, we have the potential to pick up over 3 inches of rain, with nearly half of that due to convection and thunderstorms.  You might want to keep that umbrella by your side for a while!
