Patrick Rockey’s Live VIPIR Forecast
We enjoyed another unusually mild July day on Wednesday, but do you get the feeling that this can’t last? You’re right. Temperatures will warm up over the next few days and then the rain will move in. And there could be a lot of rain.
Our winds will shift back around to the southeast on Thursday, sending temperatures back into the mid-to-upper 80s. We’ll enjoy partly cloudy skies with only a slight rain chance.
Those rain chances start to climb on Friday, especially in the afternoon. The cold front that brought us this mild weather will hit reverse.
Over the weekend, that storm system will move in and set up shop, bringing us a good chances for showers and storms both Saturday and Sunday. And we could see quite a bit of rain. Forecasts are for 2-3 inches of rain or more. And some of the wet weather may linger into Monday, as well.
