As I’ve been saying on the radio for days it would not be constant rain this weekend with some breaks, but we will be pretty gloomy much of the time along with the threat of a shower or thunderstorm anytime of the day or night and some heavy rain totals along the way and an isolated severe storm possible. The rain odds are high.
Once passed the weekend a stretch of beautiful weather awaits so there is weather light at the end of the muggy and unsettled tunnel.
A cold front will sweep through Monday and bring refreshing weather with low dew points (dry air) so low humidity producing cool to chilly mornings and mild afternoons with a return of ample sun.
Good weather to open the windows especially at night and get some free natural air conditioning and save some money. High and low temperatures will be cooler than normal for this time of year. Normal or average is currently a high of 79 and low of 59.
Sure the timing could be better but it beats a long hot dry brutal Summer that starts in April and doesn’t ends until October as we’ve had so many times in recent decades.
A small chance of a shower returns with another front Thursday (moisture pocket seen in Midwest in second chart below), but after that looks dry again through next weekend with a warming trend.
