A Look at The Weekend

It sure felt like fall on Friday with temperatures topping out in the upper 70's underneath a mostly cloudy sky. The humidity was low, which helped make it feel very nice. That won't last, though, as a disturbance will bring rain and some storms Friday night into early Saturday morning. As that occurs, much higher dew points will surge north, making it feel quite humid by the time you wake up on Saturday morning. That humidity won't be going anywhere this weekend. In fact, the dew points will surge into the upper 60's and lower 70's Saturday, and that will last through the middle of next week. Temperatures for the weekend will be warmer than we have seen lately. Highs on Saturday beneath a mostly cloudy sky will reach the lower 80's. Sunday we will warm a little more than that into the middle 80's as skies look to remain mostly cloudy.
Once Saturday morning's rain exits, we look mainly dry for the remainder of the weekend. Isolated showers and storms are possible at just about any time, but there is no significant chance of rainfall through the weekend. However, a stronger storm is possibly with Saturday morning's activity, in addition to any activity that develops later in the day. The Storm Prediction Center has the entire area in a "Marginal Risk" for severe weather through the day on Saturday. But the overall threat looks quite low. Many areas may not even see a shower or storm develop Saturday afternoon and evening.
