Chief Meteorologist Justin Stapleton‘s Daily Forecast Discussion:
What a great way to end the week with plenty of sunshine and highs pushing into the mid 60s! Not bad to see 3 out of the five days with 60 degree temperatures for this week. We’ll likely make it 4 out of 6 as the mild air will still be in place before the rain moves back in by Saturday night and Sunday.
Tonight, we’re in store for a beautiful start to the night, cooling quickly down into the mid to low 40s by morning. Saturday starts off with low fog and will be followed by thicker clouds as the front arrives in the afternoon. Rain will start at the coast around early afternoon, early evening for the inland valleys. Winds pick up as well, gusting to around 40-50mph at the coast by Saturday morning, breezy in the afternoon for inland areas. Showers will continue overnight into Sunday, slowly tapering off later that night. Highs will still be warm tomorrow before the rain, in the mid to upper 60s. Cooler once the rain moves through, back down into the 50s.
Monday starts off with a chance for some additional rain with a trough moving through and a quick shot of colder air will bring snow lines down to 4000 feet. Not much accumulating snow more than a couple of inches. The rain will end by Monday afternoon and that’s the end of the wet weather for a couple of days heading into midweek!
Have a great weekend!
