Rain & Stormy Late Friday & First Half of Saturday

Tonight – Some Clouds – High 84

There could be a stray pop-up shower late this afternoon or tonight, but that’s not looking likely.

Thursday – Isolated Thunderstorms Possible – High 86

7a 68 . 10a 78 . 1p 84 . 4p 86 . 7p 82 . 10p 75

Yet another afternoon chance of a shower/thunderstorm, but the ingredients are not coming together as well as they could be. Not expecting any rain, but we can’t rule it out.

Friday – Thunderstorms – High 87

7a 69 . 10a 79 . 1p 85 . 4p 87 . 7p 82 . 10p 75

A cold front is coming, and will fire off rain and storms late Friday, although we think this timing may change.

Our NWS forecasts 0.76″ of rain with this system.

The SPC (Storm Prediction Center) thinks some of these storms could pack a punch as they roll through. They have us under a 5% chance of severe weather happening within 25 miles of you:

Damaging winds will be our greatest threat with these storms.

Here is the Canadian model sees things as of 1 a.m. Saturday:

Weekend – Wet/Stormy Saturday; Clear Sunday High 80s

Most of the rain and thunderstorms are expected Saturday morning through the early afternoon, clearing by the end of the day. Sunday, by contrast, looks nice.

This forecast could change completely because of a tropical system in the southern Gulf of Mexico. If that system comes north and is picked up by the approaching system, we may get a lot more rain. Stay tuned.
