Chance Showers/T-Storm Over the Weekend

We’ll see partly to mostly sunny days and mostly clear to partly cloudy nights through Friday.  Our next chance of rain will come on Saturday.  There is a chance of a little patchy fog early this morning, but not nearly as much fog as we had Tues. morning.  Winds will be light from the west today and then northeast to east on Thursday, shifting to the southeast on Friday.  High temperatures will stay in the mid 60s for the mid-week, warming to the low 70s on Friday and the mid-upper 70s on Saturday (which may be the warmest day we’ll see maybe the rest of September).  Winds will be fairly light for the midweek, around 5-10 mph.  It’ll be a little breezy on Saturday with southwest winds of 15-20 mph.

We will see scattered showers and storms over the weekend.  Timing isn’t exactly certain, but during the period from Saturday thru Sunday morning, we’ll likely see 1/2 to 3/4″ of rain.  The most likely time for rain will be Saturday evening and Saturday night.  Skies may clear during the afternoon on Sunday.  We’ll likely be partly sunny and dry from Monday to Wednesday of next week, with high temperatures back to the low-mid 60s.
