Heating up & some showers returning for the weekend
The dry air has felt nice the past few days and has led to some comfortable mornings. But, humidity levels should gradually rise over the next few days and result in the return of some afternoon t-showers for the weekend
The mornings should remain comfortable in the mid 60s on average through Friday. There will still be some areas away from the city in the 50s through Friday Morning. Sunny to partly sunny both days. But, by Friday the humidity levels should gradually increase due to air flow from the southeast. Most local spots should remain dry, but that southeasterly flow over the eastern Blue Ridge Mtns could result in some scattered afternoon and evening t-showers for that part of our viewing area (Copperhill, Murphy, Blue Ridge, Ellijay as examples). Afternoon highs each day should average in the upper 80s to lower 90s!
Aside from that chance for a t-shower east on Friday, the first night of Riverbend looks partly cloudy with 80s.
AFTERNOON T-SHOWERS RETURNING
By Saturday, we should see the return of a typical June weather pattern locally. A partly sunny sky and humid with highs near 90. However, be aware of some "pop up" variety of afternoon and evening t-showers. Mainly scattered and not everywhere, but something that could cause some outdoor plan interruptions at times.
By Sunday, a slow approaching front from the north along with daytime heating could lead to a better local coverage of afternoon and evening t-showers. Not the all day variety of showers, but again, some interruptions in outdoor plans at times.
Please remember for both days that when the thunder roars, head indoors!
SCATTERED T-SHOWERS EARLY NEXT WEEK
The cool front mentioned above could stall to our north. This could keep a daily chance of afternoon and evening t-showers in our local forecast for Monday and Tuesday. More clouds than sun each day and quite humid with highs in the 80s. Neither day looks to have an "all day" rainfall, but the better timing of scattered t-showers during the afternoon and evening hours.
As always, you can depend on the StormTrack 9 Team for updates!
