Looking for rain threats

Good Friday to one and all. Our dry weather rolls on into the start of the weekend, but some subtle changes are showing up next week. These changes look to bring our best chance for rain in nearly a month, but that’s not saying much given how little it’s rained.

Let us focus on today before we get too far ahead of ourselves. Highs are generally in the upper 70s and low 80s with a mix of sun and clouds showing up. Just like the past couple of days, there’s a VERY small chance for a popup shower.

I wouldn’t be holding my breath on seeing one, but our regional radar is there just in case:

Our weekend looks warm and rather windy, so abide by local burning restrictions. A cold front will then work in here Sunday night and Monday, bringing the potential for showers and storms. Here’s how the NAM sees it arriving Sunday night:

Here’s the Canadian through Monday night:

This isn’t likely to be a full blown soaking rain, but we will take whatever we can get at this point. Temps will be very pleasant and near normal behind this front.

The pattern continues to look a little active behind this boundary and could throw one or two more rain chances at us later next week:

After we get through whatever comes at us next week, the setup for the final few days of September into the first week of October looks super toasty. Folks, this is a very warm pattern that will continue through the middle of October. The setup is there for a bad forest fire season in our neck of the woods.

Happy Friday and take care.
