TODAY/TONIGHT: Today we will be tracking more showers across the southern half of the region. The high resolution models are bringing the rain into the Ports, but the GFS and EURO are keeping us dry as there is a dry mid-level layer in the atmosphere. I’m going with a 60% chance of showers for the Ports despite that in accordance with the high-res models. Higher chances south of the Ports, lower to our north. Highs will be in the lower 50’s today in the Ports, mid to upper 50’s inland. Winds will be out of the east 10-20mph.
Tonight we will see mostly cloudy skies and a slight chance of some rain. Patchy dense fog is possible as well. Winds will remain breezy out of the east.
THURSDAY: A large low will push into the region on Thursday to bring a 90% chance of rain and some isolated thunder. Highs will be in the mid-50’s with winds out of the E 15-25mph gusting up to 35mph. New rain accumulations will be between 1-3” across the region.
FRIDAY: Friday we will see some showers in the morning hours in the Ports, then some clearing and breezy winds. Showers will linger north of the Ports through the day. Highs will remain in the mid-50’s with winds out of the WNW 10-15mph.
WEEKEND: Saturday we will see partly sunny skies and a 20% chance of some scattered showers with a weak shortwave in the jetstream passing. Highs will be in the upper 60’s at least! Sunday we will see partly cloudy skies and highs into the mid-70’s! A big ridge will bring warmer temperatures early next week.
