Dry For Some (But Not All) Memorial Day

Friday’s Weather Discussion from Chief Meteorologist Justin Stapleton 

Not a bad Friday overall with just a few showers and a lot more sun breaks and frankly, a darn nice looking sunset tonight! Overnight, the valley will see some low clouds fill in, with an occasional straggling shower or two but overall, very quiet going into Saturday morning. Lows for tonight will fall back into the mid to upper 40s.

Saturday starts off dry but the next, albeit weaker storm will move through by late afternoon and evening. Highs will climb back into the mid to upper 60s and snow lines (with the warmer air moving in) will jump back above 6000 feet. Sunday will see some leftover showers in the morning but will dry out enough to break out some sunshine by late afternoon. Highs again will hold in the mid 60s.

That’s the end of the dry weather as the next storm blasts into the region on Memorial Day. Here’s how the day will break down:

– Early AM will be dry but cloudy with temps start in the upper 40s and low 50s

– First wave of rain will hit the coast by 8-9am, inland by 9-10am with a steady rain through early afternoon

– Rain tapers off to showers by late afternoon and evening

Scattered showers look to continue Tuesday through Thursday with highs generally in the mid 60s. Peeking out into next weekend, there’s a chance that we finally start to dry out again for more than half a day by next Friday.

Have a great weekend!

– Chief Meteorologist Justin Stapleton
