No Washouts This Weekend, Have Rain Gear Within Reach

Current Radar

LIGHT, OCCASIONAL RAIN TODAY

It doesn’t look too bad to be outside.

It’ll be overcast all day, for sure. High only 73°.

Current conditions:

There will be at least a little rain, but it should be the light, even drizzly variety.

HRRR model seems to have a good handle on this:

Let me zoom that in a little more:

The bulk of the heavier rain stays east. Then a few light drizzlers pop up this afternoon. Thunderstorms are not in the forecast all weekend.

Have an umbrella/rain jacket close by, and remember, the high is only 73°, so dress accordingly. Lots of stuff happening outside this Saturday. Enjoy it.

RAIN ACTIVITY WINDS DOWN SUNDAY, High 79°

Fog will reduce visibility in the pre-dawn hours.

The low pressure system should have pulled far enough north of us to substantially reduce our rain chances. Although clouds will still be around and there remains a chance of a passing shower, Sunday will be the driest day of the Friday/Saturday/Sunday group.

Titans kickoff: 77°, light SE winds, small chance of a quickly passing random light shower.

Supermoon Eclipse

I’m a little more encouraged, but I don’t feel good about being able to see it. Although the cloud-creating low is pulling out, and the NAM4 model shows some breaks in the clouds by 7 PM …

… I just don’t think we’ll get there. Here’s cloud cover at 7 PM via the GFS model:

So, maybe a few breaks in the clouds, but it will likely make for a frustrating, but probably impossible, viewing.
