Flood Threat Ends -- Hit-or-Miss Weekend Rain
Clearing out the rain and thunderstorms into the early evening -- and then a much needed chance to dry out over this Memorial Day Weekend. Cloudy skies kick off our Saturday, with a few breaks in the clouds / peeks of sunshine by afternoon. Afternoon highs are warming back up to the upper 80s -- factor in a saturated ground and it may feel more like a sauna when you step out.
Each afternoon, scattered areas of rain and possibly a stray thunderstorm cannot be ruled out (30%). We'll need to monitor for possible pocket of heavy rain -- especially since most of the area reported flooding over the past few days. Rain chance grows a bit more widespread by middle part of next week -- something to keep an eye on.
Friday night: Mostly cloudy with a 20% chance of rain and thunderstorms before 10pm. Low: 73. Wind: SSE 5-10 mph.
Saturday: Mix of sun & clouds with a 30% chance of rain and storms. High: 87. Wind: SSE 5-10 mph.
Saturday Night: Mostly cloudy. Low: 72. Wind: ESE 5-10 mph.
Sunday: Mostly cloudy with a 20% chance of rain and isolated storms. High: 87. Wind: ESE 5-10 mph.
