Cloud cover has made a return this afternoon as a weak system to our south pushes eastward. This will lead to isolated/ scattered showers for Saturday. Highs will also be a bit cooler tomorrow with the added cloud cover and spotty rain, in the lower 60's. Luckily, temperatures tick-up a bit Sunday and Monday of next week.
Breaking down the rain potential tomorrow, showers will work in from the west. As they do so, moisture will be light with rain amounts around a tenth of an inch for most. Overall, rain will be light and quick moving, leading to clearing overnight Saturday. Sunshine is set to return for Sunday but an isolated afternoon shower can't be ruled out. The same trend continues into the new work week with sunny to partly cloudy skies and an isolated shower each day.
Something we'll throw out now of concern is the chance for frost and/or freezing temperatures. A cold pivot will take place across the central and eastern US, leading to the chance for damaging plants/crops. The latest model guidance (one of many) indicates temperatures (lows) in the low to mid 30's mid-week next week. Of course this is early, but we wanted to give you the lead time to take the proper precautions. Trends have pointed toward a cold swing Wednesday/Thursday of next week for the past couple of days, so be aware moving forward. We will keep you updated as always!
For the most part, this weekend will be on the drier side. Even with showers in the forecast tomorrow, they will be light (tenth of an inch) and move out by Saturday evening. Sunshine and warmer temps will be in for Sunday with improving conditions Monday.
