Good afternoon and I hope you are enjoying your Friday thus far. Looking at a still shot of the latest CONUS satellite, cloud cover remains for the southern region of our viewing area. Fortunately, this is beginning to thin out as we get toward the PM hours. High's will top out today in the mid to upper 80's with an isolated shower or two possible.
Looking into the weekend and early next week, a front from the west will meander east. This will provide shower and storm activity (bulk of this to the north) the second half of the weekend and early next week. With that said, scattered showers are still more than likely here at home. Our first round of scattered rain will be the second half of tomorrow. From then on, Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday will have the chance for scattered showers on and off throughout the day.
The latest trends show the bulk of precipitation to the north along the front. As winds shift out of the south this evening, higher dew points will slide into the area. I anticipate much of the shower activity later this weekend and into next week to come off the Plateau and from the north and west. Again, shower/ storm activity will be scattered so don't anticipate an all day kind of event.
Though the later half of the weekend doesn't look as pleasant as today or early tomorrow, there will still be time to enjoy some outdoor activities.
