Late-Day Thunderstorm

Weekend Weather

Friday will feature a similar setup to Thursday.   After patchy morning fog burns off, the combination of daytime heating of humid air, and a wave of low pressure tracking west to east along the length of a stationary front will lead to more showers and heavy thunderstorms. While a thundershower may pop-up in any locale during the mid-afternoon hours, the bulk of activity is expected later in the day and lingering until just past midnight.

The stationary front will likely fizzle this weekend, leaving behind some sunshine and plenty of Summer heat. Since there is no mechanism, other than the heating of the humid air, to ignite an afternoon thunderstorm, the coverage of wet weather this weekend is expected to be pretty small. Most of next week, outside of Monday, should feature a similar pattern. Stay tuned.
