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.

Showers Saturday and Sunny Sunday

A cold front approaches the area on Saturday. Mostly cloudy conditions with some bright spots and maybe some breaks of sunshine in the morning.  (The GFS has a chance of a light shower in the morning.)  As we approach noontime, scattered showers are expected to break out and increase in areal coverage during the afternoon. Some thunderstorms also possible, especially late afternoon.   It will be humid with high temperatures around 86.

The cold front moves through Saturday evening.  This “cold front” is really a wind shift and drop in dew points.  Sunday will be mostly sunny, less humid and a bit warmer.  High 88.
