Scattered storms possible on Saturday night (8/19/22)
Friday featured another “copy and paste” kind of weather pattern, with more sunshine and seasonable temperatures for the afternoon. However, changes to this pattern are afoot.
Clouds will begin to increase overnight Friday and into Saturday morning. There should be gaps between the cloud coverage, so we’re only thinking a few high clouds streaming in from the west. Saturday will feature a few more clouds, with high temperatures in the upper-80s and lower-90s.
An upper-level disturbance will be approaching on Saturday. While there is a very small chance for a stray shower during the day, most will be successful in avoiding these. The better chance for storms arrives later, on Saturday evening and heading overnight.
Given the increased potential for standing water with any storms on Sunday, we’re bumping the Skeeter Meter into the “Ugh” territory. However, rain chances subside on Monday, allowing us to scale back on the “skeeter” potential.
Some scattered showers remain possible early Sunday. However, we should turn drier for many hours during the day. An isolated shower or storm can’t be ruled out on Sunday afternoon and evening, but the overall chances are lower. By Monday, rain chances subside entirely.
