Lows are near 61 Friday morning and highs reach the upper 80s by the afternoon. A nice ridge of high pressure sits over the region.
A cold front nears from the west and brings more warm air from the south before it passes through. This keeps temps from cooling down so lows are in the low 60s. By mid-morning we have a 60% chance of showers and even a few rumbles of thunder cannot be ruled out. Right now around 0.25-0.5″ is possible.
Sunday morning we have low 60s and highs reach the low 80s. There’s some hints that we might need to increase the chance of rain for Sunday afternoon as another low pressure system nears from the southwest. There’s a 20% chance of a shower or two as of now, but as you can see below, the Euro model brings wet weather to the region.
