Thursday, May 16 Forecast Discussion

Showers and a rumble of thunder or two have been with us today, and they will be with us into the evening. More showers and storms will be with us tomorrow as the upper level low swings through. The greatest chance of rain will be to our north, but as this upper level low has shown, we will probably see more storms develop further south than models are showing, so I have bumped rain chances up to 30 percent with a strong storm possible.

A rogue shower may be with us Saturday, but temperatures will climb into the upper 80s through the weekend. I am increasingly confident that next week will see not only our first 90 degree days, but a few of them in a row, so highs have been bumped to 90 for Monday through Wednesday. We will at least be in the upper 80s and dry until our next cold front.

Our next cold front may arrive Thursday or Friday, but early indications are it may stall to our north as high pressure remains intact. We have plenty of time to worry about that, however.
