Patrick Rockey’s Live VIPIR Forecast

Temperatures are headed up, but so are our rain chances.

We enjoyed plenty of sunshine on Wednesday and we’ll hold on to the clear skies heading into Thursday. However, we’ll see the winds shift to the south overnight, meaning Thursday will be a lot milder. We’ll enjoy clear skies through much of the day, with a few more clouds late in the day. Expect highs in the upper 60s and lower 70s.

A strong southwesterly wind will mean a big warm up on Friday. Expect highs in the upper 70s and lower 80s. However, we’ll have a slight chance for showers during the day, with a better shot for rain and Thunderstorms on Friday evening.

It looks like the soggy weather will stick around for the first part of Saturday, before the skies clear in the afternoon. With the sunshine, we should warm into the low-to-mid 60s.

Eastern Sunday is looking clear, but cooler. It’ll be a bit cool for sunrise services, with temperatures in the upper 30s and lower 40s. And expect high temperatures only in the upper 50s and lower 60s by the afternoon.
