FIRST ALERT WEATHER SUMMARY
Temps are in the low 50s tonight with cloudy skies and we’ll just have a 20% chance of a few sprinkles here and there.
Wednesday we have mostly cloudy skies with a 30% chance of showers. The jet stream is down to the south over the entire Southeast. This brings small waves that cause enough uplift to warrant the chance of showers. Temps are still in the low 70s. The best chance for rain is in the late afternoon.
We have low 50s Thursday morning and highs reaching the upper 70s, a little warmer. There’s a 30% chance of showers again as we continue to see some more moisture moving in from the south.
A stronger trough in the jet stream swings east and brings an 80% chance of rain and even a rumble of thunder as well for Friday. As of now it looks to be heaviest during the Thursday night into Friday morning. We could see some redevelopment by the afternoon Friday. Around a half inch to three quarters of an inch is possible.
Saturday we get a break from the rain. We cannot rule out a 20% shot, but for the most part we remain dry. Expect mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies with highs reaching the low 80s.
Another low pressure system arrives Sunday. We’ve increased the chance of rain to 60%. Right now most of the activity looks to be in the evening to overnight. Lows are in the upper 50s and highs reach the mid 70s.
