[su_note note_color=”#d9f2da”]Fri 8 am. Last night’s models have increased the chance of thundershowers early this evening and have decreased the high temperatures expected for Sunday into the low 80s.[/su_note]

The forecast for the weekend, especially Sunday, has been anything but consistent and similar to last week, I’m glad I waited until today to take a stab at the weekend outlook.

A cold front will move through Friday late afternoon/evening. Some showers and thunderstorms are possible with the frontal passage.

High pressure will build in for Saturday.  Saturday looks to be a beautiful day with high temperatures near 76.

The front that moved through Friday moves back as a warm front before daybreak Sunday. Several times during the week, it appeared that showers would be likely during the morning Sunday.

However, the latest models have the wind shift occurring without any showers.

Sunday is forecast to be fairly hot, with the NAM forecasting 90 degrees and the GFS and NBM 86.  The EKDMOS has a temperature range of 88-91.  Dew points move to the mid-60s and possibly approach the uncomfortable 70 degree range by Sunday evening. Sunday will feature a mix of clouds and hazy sunshine.

The FV3-GFS shows some thundershowers late afternoon Sunday; the NAM doesn’t at this time.
