A warm and dry start to our Friday morning!
It was humid yesterday.. down right uncomfortable today! Winds switch gears to be out of the south, pulling in a little more moisture with it.
After a dry couple of days, some big changes are in store going into our Memorial Day holiday weekend. An upper level weak system will squeeze a few spotty afternoon storms today. Not a big deal.. no washout! Just have the umbrella handy.
**Quick pause before I dive into the timing of round #2**
Daytime highs will be scorching once again. Yesterday we hit 90 and today will not be far from it, in the upper 80s around town.
If you’re heading to the Sounds Game this evening, first pitch is at 6:35 PM. A passing shower or thunderstorm is possible but it won’t be a washout by any means. Bring a poncho just in case!
Ok, here’s where my eye is at. A developing system off the coast of the Yucatan Peninsula. This system continues to strengthen and expected to develop into a Tropical Storm, especially as it treds through the warm Gulf waters. Though we will not see a direct impact in the Mid State, we will get a decent soaking of rain and thunderstorms in the days ahead.
Any outdoor chores, errands or runs should be taken advantage of on Saturday morning.
Scattered showers and thunderstorms arrive by Saturday afternoon, fizzling out considerably by Saturday night.
Round #3 of rain arrives by late Sunday morning, turning into a widespread event by the afternoon. Check it out…
I’m confident enough to turn our rain chances up a notch, to a 70% chance on Sunday. Memorial Day is looking rather wet as well so you’ll want a plan B. How about movies, popcorn and games with family and friends inside? Just an idea. 🙂
There is ALWAYS a bright side in a forecast and I think our friends suffering with allergies will appreciate this! Rain brings some relief from the pollen this weekend… triple score!
Keep the umbrella handy every day in the week ahead. Some days will be more unsettled than others but we won’t see a completely dry day for a long minute.
