Scattered rain and storms expected this weekend.

Things will change slightly this weekend as a more frontal pattern takes shape. This basically means that the chances for storms will go up as a cold front crosses us, and a couple of lows keep the pressure down. As for now, things are quiet with partly cloudy skies to go with warm and muggy conditions. Fog may be problematic at times this morning.

As we get the sunshine and subsequent warm up, the morning fog will lift and scatter. Temperatures are set to warm to the middle 80s this afternoon and clouds will build. There will be some isolated thundershower activity through the afternoon, but also expect a more linear wave of thunderstorms once the front crosses. The usual players are expected throughout the afternoon and evening. Heavy downpours, abundant lightning, strong wind gusts, and small to moderate hail. If you’re not getting storms, expect hot and muggy conditions. Storms will subside mostly overnight, but lingering storms are also possible. Another round of afternoon scattered storms is expected for Sunday. After the front passes a cooler/drier air mass will begin to work in. Even though we stay hot after the front, the humidity gets cut for the beginning of next week.
