Weekend Outlook

Finally seeing sunshine in our future; however, temperatures are looking to cool...

While dry conditions are filtering into our region tonight, winds are becoming strong and gusty. Wind gusts near 35 MPH will be possible for the overnight, before winds decrease in strength for tomorrow. The direction of the winds will have an impact on our temperatures tonight and tomorrow...

This is a look at the 850 mb level in the atmosphere. Notice how winds are pulling in cooler air from the northwest at this level, which will in turn cool conditions at the surface. Overnight lows are expected to drop down between 35-40. We will stay cool tomorrow afternoon too, with highs topping out in the upper 50s.

Temperatures will attempt to rebound on Sunday with highs reaching into the mid 60s. Overall, Sunday is expected to be the better of the two days this weekend; but, by Sunday night, rain will start to approach from the south. This rain will spread region wide by Monday and Tuesday...

The upper panel shows the low strengthening over our region on Monday. After just seeing rainfall yesterday and today, this new rain will bring the potential for street flooding in our region. Already, rivers are running high and the ground is moist. This rain system will be widespread, as we are seeing supportive upper level dynamics (bottom panel). Notice how there is a negatively tilted trough and a stronger jet aloft. Heavy rain will be possible.

Have a good weekend!
