More scattered showers and storms

Posted: Updated:

Good Friday!  We will end the week with more scattered thunderstorms.  Yesterday many of us had 2"-3" of rain.  We will add another couple of inches to that through the weekend.  As a result, a Flash Flood Watch has been issued through Saturday evening.

We continue with the pattern of an unsettled atmosphere with impulse after impulse of low pressure training through producing fairly persistent showers and storms.  Today, we can expect isolated showers and storms this morning with more widespread activity later today into this evening.  Temps will be in the upper 70s and low 80s today.  There is a slight risk of some severe storms today producing gusty winds, lightning, and heavy rain.

For Saturday, the rain chance will stay high.  More scattered showers and storms will move in throughout the day.  If you are looking for a ray of hope for the fireworks Saturday evening, here you go.  I don't think the showers and storms will be as widespread as they have been for the past couple of days, but they will be there.  While it may not be a complete washout, I would certainly have your plan B ready to go just in case.

Sunday looks slightly less active with a high of 82, and spotty showers and storms through the day.

Next week we will see a return of a pretty typical summer weather pattern.  Highs will be in the mid 80s with lots of humidity.  There will be a few spotty showers and storms each day, mainly in the afternoon.  To track the storms using the interactive radar, download the WRCB weather app.     David Karnes.
