Chief Meteorologist Justin Stapleton‘s Daily Forecast Discussion:
A fast moving front zipped through earlier this afternoon dropping just a few hundreths of an inch of rain areawide. Skies have broken up some this evening and we’re trying to clear out in time for the Cameloparadalids meteor shower tonight. If the clouds break, it should be a heck of a good light show. Peak time for the shower will be between 11pm and 2am west coast time where we could see upwards of 50 meteors per hour or more (if you can see them).
Saturday will be the sunnier of the two weekend days, with morning clouds and mostly sunny skies back by the afternoon. Clouds will be back Sunday with showers late in the evening. Highs very comfortable in the low 70s. Memorial Day is looking like the strongest day in terms of showers and rain coverage, but even then, they’ll be light and mainly moving through in the morning hours. Cooler as well into the holiday with highs falling back into the low 70s to mid 60s. Next week is looking like a mixed bag of sorts, with some showers Tuesday, then drying out later in the week.
Have a great weekend!
