Quick Saturday Update

More sun today than I expected based on the GFS model forecast yesterday. (The GFS model was updated by the NWS this past Wednesday.)

Clouds start moving in 2-3 PM.   Thunderstorms appearing likely as early as 5 PM and increasingly likely during the period from 5PM to 9 PM.

For Sunday,  much of the day rain-free, but thunderstorms again appear likely late afternoon into evening.

Heat tapers as some cloudiness and showers move in

A weak and poorly defined pattern typical of summer will make the specifics of the weekend forecast a bit more challenging to nail down.

A weak cold front is expected to sag south later Saturday and allow an area of showers and thunderstorms to move in late Saturday afternoon into the evening.  It will be very humid during the day and high temperatures are predicted to be in the low 90s, although the GFS model is suggesting considerable cloudiness which may keep high temperatures somewhat lower.

Showers Saturday evening will taper off towards midnight.

The models are suggesting an unsettled Sunday with considerable cloudiness and a chance of showers, although some breaks of sun are possible.  Timing of any showers is uncertain.  Most of the day will be rain-free.  High temperatures in the mid 80s. Remaining  humid.

Heat is expected to return on Monday.
