Clouds, Few Showers Friday Ahead of a Quiet Weekend (Source: WLBT)

Clouds have moved back in after a couple of sunny days... We’ll still warm up quickly this afternoon, but high temperatures will only reach the upper 60s as opposed to the lower 70s we had yesterday. We’ll also notice a few showers moving through the area later this afternoon and evening... Higher rain chances exist in our SW counties, so if you live along and south of HWY 84, plan on a better chance of rain this evening.

Fortunately, the low-pressure system allowing for the rain will be well to our southeast and high pressure will be building in as we kick off the weekend. This will allow for plenty of sunshine and dry conditions both Saturday and Sunday! Lows will start off in the 40s Saturday morning as clouds decrease & highs will top out in the low-mid 60s. Even though Sunday morning will be chillier, we’ll warm up nicely into the mid-upper 60s by the afternoon hours.

Our warming trend will take us all the way through next week, and we’ll ultimately be waking up in the 50s and 60s & topping out in the mid-upper 70s by Wednesday, Thursday, & Friday! Although a few showers are possible by the end of the upcoming work week, we’ll remain mostly dry through the forecast period.

First Alert Forecast: few showers Friday; seasonable weekend
