TONIGHT: Mostly Cloudy, Few Showers Late. Lo 65. Winds: Light.
MONDAY: Cloudy, Scattered Showers. Hi 75. Winds: E 5-15 mph.
TUESDAY: Lingering Clouds and Light Showers. Hi 78. Winds: E/NE 5-10 mph.
Clouds held off for much of the day making for another bright and blue sky day this weekend. Rain has been slowly working its way eastward, but we should be able to hold off the majority of it tonight. Temperatures will not fall as much thanks to the slight increase in moisture and the approaching clouds.
Monday will offer our best chance for rain this week as the storm slides to our south. Mainly light showers are expected though with generally a quarter inch or less expected. Again the trends are favoring areas south of the Midstate compared to forecasts at the end of last week that were favoring local areas. Most rain exits by late Monday night as the storm pulls away but a few showers could linger into Tuesday morning and perhaps Wednesday. With the cloud cover, highs Monday and Tuesday will be stuck in the 70s before bouncing back into the low to mid 80s toward the end of the week.
There are signs of a Bermuda high returning for next weekend with more moisture being drawn north. That could lead to a spike in humidity and storm chances Saturday, although it’s still too early to guarantee any rain.
