Tracking rain chances this weekend

The weekend doesn't look to be a complete washout, but we will be dodging rain both days.

Posted: Jun 28, 2019 4:14 PM

Summer is finally here, and the weather has improved since the spring. In the month of June, we've had 11 completely dry days. Compare that to only 5 completely dry days in May. We're getting there, but this weekend we do have to deal with rain on both days. Here are the details.

A cold front arrives Saturday morning. This brings a round of widespread rain. A few thunderstorms are possible too, but they should be few and far between. The round of rain looks to roll through between 11am-3pm, with drier weather returning for the late afternoon and early evening. Temperatures should bounce back into the mid 70s before sunset, making for a much more pleasant finish to the day.

On Sunday, more rain is expected. This time, it takes the form of scattered showers. A pool of cooler air settles in and creates instability showers, meaning the best chance of rain looks to be from the late morning to early afternoon. As we head into Sunday evening, conditions are expected to improve, with some sunshine before the day is done. Highs on Sunday will struggle just to hit 70.

Warm weather returns as we head into next week. Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday look nice, with sunshine and highs climbing back into the 80s! Hazy, hot, and humid weather looks to return as we head into the 4th of July and following weekend.
