Soggy Friday Leads to Sunny, Dry Weekend
High pressure taking over
That slow moving frontal boundary that has been giving us the clouds, fog and rain will move out of the region late tonight/early tomorrow. As low pressure exits, high pressure enters and begins drying us out this weekend into the early part of next week. You’ll be glad to know that means the sunshine returns, too. Daily highs and nightly lows will stay above normal as well.
Rain chances return as early as late Monday as yet another front sweeps through the southeast, but it’s not expected to produce as much rain if any. I’ll go with isolated showers Tuesday. That should be about it in terms of rain for the rest of the week, so we’ll have the opportunity to dry out even more from the sogginess of the last few weeks.
Rainfall today could reach 1″ with locally higher amounts possible, so the Flash Flood Watch continues through this evening for a good portion of the WLTZ First News viewing area. Minor flooding of creeks and streams may be possible.
Today- Showers likely, but ending early afternoon with a few thunderstorms possible. Highs in the low to mid 60s. South winds 10 to 15mph in the morning will turn from the west in the afternoon. Gusts could hit 20mph+.
Tonight- Mostly cloudy with lows in the upper 30s to low 40s. West winds 10 to 15mph with gusts up to 20mph.
Tomorrow- Sunshine returns with highs in the mid 50s to low 60s. Northwest winds around 10mph with gusts as high as 15mph.
