Some showers & t-showers Friday, but an even wetter pattern possible next week
A cool front should bring some showers and thundershowers locally Friday afternoon and evening. After a brief drying Saturday, showers could return by late Sunday and continue for a large part of next week.
FRIDAY COOL FRONT
A cool front should bring showers and t-showers to our viewing area, especially during the afternoon and evening hours. Some showers could occur over the eastern mountains during the morning, then the main chances area wide during the afternoon and evening hours. The risk of severe weather remains low in the "Marginal" category. The main threat being heavy downpours with a few storms and of course frequent lightning. As always, you can depend on the StormTrack 9 Team to keep you updated.
Showers and thundershowers should taper off Friday Evening as the front moves slowly to the south and stalls out.
Saturday look drier as the front remains stalled to our south. Slightly drier air moves in from the north. A partly sunny sky and afternoon highs in the mid 80s which is not too bad for the first weekend of August with the average high around 90. A comfortable night Saturday Night as temperatures drop into the mid 60s.
SHOWERS RETURNING LATE SUNDAY
The stalled front to our south should lift back our way as a warm front Sunday. This brings back higher humidity levels and should start a soggy pattern that continues for much of next week. The showers could arrive as early as late day Sunday, then a better chance evolving through Sunday Night. So, for outdoor plans on Sunday, it doesn't look too bad at all until late day and evening.
WET NEXT WEEK
As mentioned above, a wet pattern is possible for most of next week. A widespread chance of rain Monday through early Tuesday. This looks to be followed by an "off and on" pattern of showers and storms for Wednesday through Friday. In other words, expect a lot of interruptions in outdoor jobs and activities next week. Long range forecast models project the possibility of between 2.20" and 2.70" of rain locally from Sunday Night through Friday.
