Tonight: 30% chance of scattered showers and perhaps a rumble of thunder. Low: 58-62
Saturday: Partly sunny. 30% chance of scattered showers and possibly a storm in the afternoon and early evening. Dry stretches expected through the day. Not everyone will see rain. High: 77-82
Saturday Night: Variable clouds. Low: 57-61
An isolated sprinkle or passing shower is possible this evening. Most of the area remains dry. A few scattered showers are possible overnight tonight. A few showers are possible Saturday afternoon and early evening and most of Sunday looks dry with the chance of rain very low. I expect a lot of dry time this weekend and I suspect some folks will stay completely dry. The extended period of Monday through Thursday looks unsettled. A broad and stationary low pressure system in the middle atmosphere will spin above Hudson Bay in Canada. On a daily basis through the period, weak disturbances will rotate southward around this low and will keep a small chance of showers or a few storms each day, primarily during the afternoon and early evening with the heating of the day. Seasonably warm temperatures are expected with highs generally within a few degrees of 80 through Monday before highs drop back into the 70s Tuesday through next Friday.
This evening will be mostly dry; however, an isolated sprinkle or quick shower is possible. The chance of precipitation this evening is less than 10%. A few more clouds are possible tonight with a slightly better chance of some scattered rain showers and perhaps a rumble of thunder. Lows will be around 60 with the chance of rain 30%.
An upper level disturbance will slide through the northeast Saturday. Partly sunny skies are expected by the afternoon and I think we’ll see some scattered showers or perhaps a storm develop in the afternoon and early evening. Even with the chance of rain Saturday, we will see a lot of dry time. Highs will be around 80. Saturday night variably cloudy skies are expected. Lows will be around 59.
Sunday now looks like it could be a mainly dry day. I’ve dropped the chance of rain or a storm to less than 20%. If we see anything develop it would likely be in the heating of the afternoon and early evening. Just like Saturday, there will be more dry time than. I think it will be a few degrees warmer with highs around 83.
The weather pattern is shaping up to be a touch unsettled Monday through Wednesday of next week. A persistent and large area of low pressure located over Hudson Bay in northern Canada will rotate a series of weak disturbances southward across the Great Lakes into the northeast on almost a daily basis. The highest chance of rain or thunder comes on Monday with a 60% chance of precipitation. While dry stretches are expected, Tuesday and Wednesday will have at least a 20% to 30% chance of some shower or storm activity in the afternoon and early evening. High temperatures will likely be in the upper 70s. Overnight lows should be in the 50s.
