Friday is here and it is wet and cold outside. Today we can expect a high temperature of around 50 degrees with a chance of light scattered showers as we get into the afternoon and evening hours. Your Saturday looks to be colder than today with highs in the upper 40’s. There is a slight chance of showers throughout the day on Saturday but should remain mostly cloudy and dry for most of the day. The low for Saturday night is only going to be down around freezing due to the heavy cloud cover. If it were going to be clear then I would expect the low to be below freezing. After a chilly start to your Sunday morning, look for the afternoon to be pleasant with a high near 54 degrees and mostly sunny skies. The warmer temperatures are due to a building ridge that will be sliding east over our area throughout the day Sunday. The ridge will be allowed to slide east due to a weakening jet streak on the western side of the trough and a strong jet streak on the eastern side of the trough. As we can see on the 12 utc run for the GFS at noon on Sunday, the stronger jet streak will help to lift the trough out of our area allowing for the ridge to slide in. This will setup a very nice start for next week with clear sunny skies and temperatures rebounding into the 60’s. Thanks for checking your weekend forecast.
