Saturday, May 11 Forecast Discussion

By  | 

Heavy rain, thunder and lightning, and flooding have been the story on our Saturday as a stalled out frontal boundary has been keeping us in a moist and unstable environment. Showers and storms will continue for the early part of the evening, before finally tapering off after midnight. More showers and storms will fire up Sunday morning, but we shouldn’t see as many issues as what we are seeing today. A strong storm can’t be ruled out, but due to our morning timing I am not really expecting severe weather. That threat looks to stay to our east.

High pressure will settle in after Sunday, leading to a long stretch of dry weather through at least next Saturday. We’ll also see a warming trend during this time frame, with highs approaching the 90 degree mark by next weekend. Before that, our coolest mornings will be on Tuesday and Wednesday, with lows expected to drop into the middle-to-upper-50s.
