Patrick’s First Warning Forecast: Several dry days before the storms return
Chief Meteorologist Patrick Rockey’s First Warning Forecast
After tonight’s heavy downpours, it looks like we will enjoy several dry days in a row!
The stationary front that has been bringing us showers and thunderstorms for the last few days will finally wash out.
That means only slight chances for pop-up storms on Wednesday and Thursday.
But our storm chances will be going up along with our temperatures on Friday and into the weekend ahead of a cold front.
Expect high temperatures near 90° on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
And scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible each afternoon.
But the weekend is not looking like a washout.
The weather for the solar eclipse on Monday is still looking pretty good, but I have increased our cloud cover in the afternoon. Right now it looks like partly cloudy skies with high temperatures in the mid-to-upper 80s. Stay tuned!
