Good Friday, folks. We have a little more steam creeping back into the region today and that really settles in for the weekend. This will also keep showers and storms going into parts of the weekend with another increase early next week.
Today features more humidity with temps ranging from the upper 70s to middle 80s, depending on where you live. As the day wears on, scattered showers and storms will flare back up. A few of the storms may be strong and produce locally heavy rains.
Here are your radars:
Steamy temps are back for the weekend, but nothing I would call uncommon for this time of year. Humidity levels will be very high and that spawns a few afternoon storms on Saturday. The storm risk for Sunday appears greater as additional moisture works in and a deep trough approaches from the west. That sets us up for rounds of storms through the first half of next week:
Heavy rainfall is a good bet during this time and the setup is primed for cloud bursts that can cause local flash flooding conditions.
This is one deep trough moving in behind this for the middle and end of next week:
Temps come way back down to below normal during this time and we may see a few more days with highs only in the 70s.
The overall pattern is not a hot one for our region. However, it is a pattern that is likely to turn very stormy and wet over the next few weeks.
The GFS shows our region in the much above normal rainfall:
The average from the Ensembles also show the wet weather:
When all is said and done. June will go down as a very tepid first month of summer.
Have a fantastic Friday and take care.
