Showers start the weekend

Good Friday to one and all. The final weekend of September is getting off to a damp note, and not too many folks are complaining. We need the rain and it looks as if Mother Nature is delivering the goods over the next few days.

A tropical supply of moisture is filtering into the region from the east and southeast. That means our rain is coming at us from the same direction. Locally heavy downpours will be possible Friday afternoon into the evening. Temps will drop into the low and mid-60s during that time.

Scattered showers could be joined by an isolated thunderstorm Saturday. The rain doesn’t look as widespread, but you will want to take the poncho out to Commonwealth Stadium. Highs should generally run in the upper 60s to low 70s. Game temps will be in the 60s.

Isolated showers and storms will be around Sunday, with highs again in the 70s.

A cold front moves our way by the middle of next week and might pick up some additional tropical moisture. A system might develop in the Gulf of Mexico this weekend, and the models suggest that we could get some showers from that:

GFS 2This is a pattern that continues to look much more active as we roll into early October. The latest European Model shows  a healthy storm unleashing some chilly weather for the first weekend of the new month:

EuroWe will have to see how that works out as we get closer.

I leave you with all your rain tracking tools for the day:
