A difficult weather pattern has taken hold for the second week in a row. Weather will remain unsettled through Saturday morning with a chance for rain. Rain chances should go down for the weekend with temperatures remaining in the 80s even behind a series of weak fronts that will push through today and Friday.
At this point it looks like the best chance for rain through the weekend will be today. Once again we will put our rain chance in the scattered chance with a 40 percent coverage area possible through the day. While we have a lot of moisture to work with (humidity) at the surface, there is little in the way of moisture in the mid to upper levels. This means rain totals will likely not be that high. Model data also supports this theory with the GFS forecasting 22 hundredths of an inch of rain falling through the day today. The GFS is dry for Friday. The EURO keeps the threat of rain around through Friday with 24 hundredths of an inch falling today and 14 hundredths of an inch of rain falling on Friday. Both models remain basically dry over the weekend with the EURO pumping out an unlikely 2 hundredths of an inch of rain Sunday morning.
The one constant through the weekend will be high temperatures. Highs should hit the mid-80s today. I am forecasting a high of 85 degrees. Mid 80s will likely be hit each afternoon for highs through Saturday. Sunday highs will hit the low 80s. The active pattern looks to settle down for just a bit as we head into next week. Rain chances will return on Tuesday though as a more powerful front is set to slide through from the north. This front could pull Wednesday highs down to the 70s. Enjoy your day!
