We have finally kicked that pesky upper low and it’s now to our north. Who do we thank? A little short wave trough that helped kick it north, but now that trough is going to stall offshore and meander across the region all weekend. So what does this mean to you? Well, we run a small chance for showers and thunderstorms troughout the weekend. We can see some low-topped thunderstorms popping up due to the upper level temperatures being so cold that it will be easy to get some lifting of air parcels to pop up a thunderstorm. Our only saving grace is that it will be dry at the surface so although you will get some towering cumulus clouds the moisture would most likely evaportate before it reached the ground….or at least one can hope. In order to accomplish this we would need for the clouds to not roll in overnight after we reach a high into the middle and upper 70s on Friday with lots of sunshine. If the clouds do roll in it will keep in the heat of the day and raise dewpoint temperatures as well. This will just allow an easier time for showers and thunderstorms to be able to pop up on Saturday with enough sunshine. Highs will be just around the lower 60s. Overnight Saturday there will be scattered clouds with lows dipping down towards the middle 40s and then on Sunday we will have sun and clouds with an isolated shower or thunderstorm(west of the city). At least on Monday and lasting into the middle of next week we stay sunny and dry with high pressure protecting us and temperatures rebounding to the more seasonable 70 degrees for early October.
Have a great weekend and be sure to follow updates on my Facebook Weather Page!
