Storms possible overnight Saturday, trending drier thereafter (8/20/22)
After several days of dry and comfortable weather, an upper-level disturbance brings some changes to the forecast on Saturday night.
Scattered showers and storms are in the forecast for Saturday night. That will be our best opportunity to pick up some measurable rainfall for the time being.
Rain chances start to taper off early Sunday, although we can’t rule out some scattered showers in a few areas. There’s another peak in rain chances, although smaller, during the afternoon as a stray shower may develop. That said, afternoon rain chances appear fairly small.
Given the overnight storm potential, we’re keeping the Skeeter Meter in the “Ugh” territory on Sunday since there may be some standing water in the morning. However, we trend in a drier direction next week. The humidity also will also decline on Monday and Tuesday. This means that we can steadily scale back on the Skeeter Meter next week.
For now, the rest of the 7-Day Forecast looks dry. It’ll be another period of dry and relatively comfortable weather. Temperatures will slowly warm, however. We may reach the 90s for high temperatures by the end of the workweek.
