Thursday, July 17 Forecast Discussion

Clouds this morning kept us from seeing record breaking cold, but it was still a chilly morning nonetheless. Clouds have been increasing through the day, and we will turn overcast through the night and into our Friday. Showers look to arrive around and after noon Friday and be with us through the rest of the day and through our Saturday as a system moves through the area. Rainfall amounts could be heavy at times with one to three inches of rain possible by Sunday morning.

Sunday looks to transition to more isolated to scattered shower and storm activity as we attempt to warm up but still have plenty of moisture and a lifting focus (stalled boundaries) through the area. The best chance for rain Sunday looks to be in the morning hours with just an isolated shower or storm in the afternoon.

The isolated shower and storm chance remains in the forecast through the back part of next week. High pressure will attempt to build in from our east and west, but as of now, does not look like it will win the fight, causing us to keep the rain chances possible.

Highs will try and make it to the mid 80s Friday before rain arrives with low 80s the absolute best we can do on Saturday. Sunday will start to see highs head back towards 90, getting there by Tuesday. We are done with our cool mornings after tonight as lows return to 70.
