[su_box title=”Weather Update Fri 11pm” box_color=”#defcdc” title_color=”#000000″]Tonight’s NAM just available has slow clearing with widely scattered sprinkles into mid morning Saturday. Then clearing in the afternoon.

For Sunday, the rain is further delayed into evening. Much of the daytime dry on Sunday according to the NAM. Extremely windy late Sunday night.[/su_box]

The model forecasts have changed for this weekend, especially for Sunday.

But, let me start with Saturday’s forecast:

The warm front that is moving through tonight (Fri) will bring heavy rain during the nighttime hours.  The models have been consistent with the rain ending between 6 and 8 AM Saturday.   There will be slow clearing by late morning and some sun is expected during Saturday afternoon. Winds will be light.  High temp 74-76, but the EKDMOS has us near 80!

The big change is Sunday’s forecast, where the models (NAM, GFS) are delaying the heavy rain until late in the afternoon and Sunday evening/night.

There’s  uncertainty whether there will be some light widely scattered showers earlier in the day.  The statistical models (MOS) have a low chance of any precip during much of the daytime hours, however the NAM has some light, widely sprinkles/showers in the morning and afternoon.

It will be windy on Sunday.  With less sun, it will be cooler with a high of 72, still above average for the middle of April.
