Friday – Off & On Rain – High 42°

In the morning, HRRR Simulated Radar thinks most of the rain will be light, scattered, and located along and south of a I-40:

The NAM4 simulated radar continues the trend of light and scattered showers during the rest of the day on Friday. So, I think it’s safe to expect off and on light rain all day.

Saturday – Warmer, Storms – 40° / 62°

Saturday morning, a warm front will come racing northward, sending temps skyrocketing into the low 60°s. It will be cloudy, and it may rain just a little, but we don’t expect much rain.

Meanwhile, a squall line will form to our west, and begin marching towards us.

When these storms arrive sometime late Saturday afternoon or evening, they are not expected to be severe. The reason is a lack of surface-based instability. While the “elevated storms” we will get are not completely innocent, they are not of any particular concern.

The actual cold front pushing the squall line our way will come through early Sunday morning. There may be some leftover rain, but after that, expect dry weather from Sunday night at least through next Thursday.

Temperatures next week will be colder than normal. Sorry.
