For the third weekend in a row, we have some soggy weather on tap for your Saturday. It is possible we could see a few strong to severe storms with gusty winds and heavy rainfall, but it looks like the worst of it is going to stay to our west.
Rain is possible throughout the day today as a low pressure system works its way in from the west. Showers are likely this morning but will become more scattered this afternoon. Most of the storms are going to hold off until tonight.
Temperatures will remain unseasonably warm, topping out in the low 70s this afternoon under mostly cloudy skies.
Overnight, temperatures will remain mild, only falling into the upper 50s to low 60s, but our chance for thunderstorms increases. It looks like we will get a brief break from the rain Saturday evening before a line of showers and storms moves through late Saturday night, mainly after midnight, and into early Sunday morning as the cold front associated with that low pressure system swings through.
Some of those storms could be strong or possibly even severe. If we do see any strong to severe storms, the main threats will be gusty winds and heavy rainfall, which could cause some localized flooding in low-lying areas. We expect to see 0.5-1.5” of rain in total from this system, which should not cause any major, widespread flooding issues.
The rain will continue to work its way across the region through the first half of your Sunday, but by Sunday afternoon, that cold front will be pushing off to our southeast and taking the rain with it.
Our temperatures will steadily fall throughout the day on Sunday as the colder air on the backside of that front settles in. We will hit our high temperature in the mid 60s very early Sunday morning, and temperatures will be falling into the upper 40s to low 50s Sunday afternoon.
The good news is that Monday and Tuesday both look nice and dry. Our skies will gradually clear throughout the day on Monday with high temperatures in the upper 50s to low 60s, and Tuesday will be sunny with high temperatures in the mid 60s.
Scattered showers do return to the forecast Wednesday and continue through Friday, so keep it tuned to WYMT for more updates on that throughout the week.
