Another warm, humid day
Good Friday! We will have another day of unseasonably warm and humid air.
The "Bermuda High" over the western Atlantic which has been bringing us warmth and moisture has also been inhibiting the development of rain. That will be the case again today as highs reach the mid to upper 80s, and any rain that does develop will likely be on the Plateau and westward, away from the clutches of the high pressure ridge.
This weekend, the Bermuda High will ease up a bit, allowing a cold front to push through.
For Saturday, this will mean more cloud cover and a few isolated showers and storms ahead of the front, primarily during the afternoon. The rain chance Saturday is 30%. Highs will be in the mid 80s.
Sunday, we will continue to see mostly cloudy skies and spotty showers for the morning hours as the front approaches. The front will move through during the afternoon and evening hours, and that is when we will have widespread showers and thunderstorms pressing through.
For the weekend, we will see 1.5" to 2.5" of rain, with most of that falling Sunday afternoon and evening.
We will dry out and cool down a little as we head into next week.
