Showers Tonight, Rain Chances Through Next Week

Current Radar

Tonight: Clouds Increasing, Showers – Temps Drop Into the Low 70s Overnight

Update: Mother nature has changed her mind, again. Showers are moving in from the west, and are expected to arrive later this evening. The heaviest of this rain will remain along and north of interstate 40. Otherwise, temps will drop through the 70s overnight.

Sunday: Sunny, Small Chance of Showers in the Afternoon – Early 69° High 94°

That nice high pressure from Saturday will begin moving to the East on Sunday allowing for moisture to move in from the South. Temps will climb into the mid 90s and dew points will reach back into the mid 60s; to say the least, it may not feel great outside tomorrow.

As we head into the afternoon and early evening hours, with the moisture in our atmosphere, some showers and possibly strong thunderstorms may begin to develop. Showers and storms should remain scattered so some of us may see some storms while others may not. Main concerns with any of these storms that may develop are damaging winds, heavy rainfall, and frequent lightning.

Independence Day: Cloudy, Rain/Storms Chances Look Good (not good for us) – Early 74° High 91°

Unfortunately the 4th isn’t looking promising for any afternoon or evening plans.

The NWS had this to say about the day:

The beginning of the day we will more than likely have cloudy skies increasing into the afternoon. Once we hit that afternoon period it will become fair game for these showers and thunderstorms to develop. These storms should not be “pop-up” in nature, so we should see them coming on the radar.

If you haven’t already started thinking about a rain plan for your Independence Day festivities, I would start to keep one in mind because the forecast is not looking favorable for us.

And to you mother nature…..

Next Week: Summertime Continues

My Forecast - Google Chrome 2016-07-02 08.48.41

Next week will be very similar to what we experienced through the end of this past week. Most days should start off with mostly sunny skies and as we progress into the afternoon hours, chances of rain and thunderstorms will increase.

Our temps and dew point temps will also climb through the week next week; prepare for the heat index values to knock at the door of 100° again.
