Friday Morning: Wet commute once again; Lovely weekend ahead

Weather

StormTracker Forecast…We are tracking two fronts this morning – One front is to our east and one front is to our west and northwest. The second front will help clear us out and dry us out, but it does not arrive until late tonight. In the meantime, we are dealing with a band of showers that is crawling to the east this morning. You can expect light to moderate rain this morning. As the band tracks to the east, our rain chances will gradually decrease through the late morning and afternoon. Clouds may break a bit, allowing us to see some sunshine this afternoon, but overall, the unsettled weather pattern continues until the second front arrives late tonight.

The second front may trigger a few spotty showers late this evening. You will want to keep the umbrella on hand if you’ll be out late tonight, but any that forms shower will be light and brief. Clouds will gradually clear through the early morning hours on Saturday. Much cooler when we’re waking up on Saturday — temperatures will be sitting in the mid and upper 40s.

This weekend will be gorgeous! Sunshine will rule the weekend, but it will be on the cooler side on Saturday. Highs will top out in the upper 50s to lower 60s on Saturday before warming up to the low and mid-60s on Sunday. Enjoy!

A weak front will pass through the region Monday night and into Tuesday, which will increase rain chances to around 40% on Tuesday. We are monitoring for another system to move in late next week. Stay tuned and enjoy your weekend!
