Rain Ends In Time For A Dry & Sunny Weekend

Ugh.  Clouds, 40s, showers... What happened to the dry, sunny, spring day we had yesterday? Luckily, this fast moving storm will pull out just in time for the weekend. Showers will become more numerous tonight with the chance for a heavier downpour in spots. But the rain ends between 2-4 am, well before sunrise.

If you see some clouds Saturday morning, don’t fret.   A northwest breeze will pump in drier air. Gray skies will give way to blue with increasing sunshine. Temperatures will remain around average for this time of year, in the middle 50s.  High pressure continues to build in Sunday with wall to wall sunshine and less wind. While most of the state will see highs in the upper 50s, a few spots inland could approach 60 degrees. Rain returns Monday night, heavy at times through Tuesday morning.

Tonight: Showers becoming more numerous. A heavier downpour in spots too. Low: 38-42.

Tomorrow: Morning clouds break for sunshine. Breezy with a westerly wind at 10 to 20 miles an hour. High temperatures in the middle 50s.

Sunday: Mostly sunny, milder. A west wind at 5 to 15 miles an hour. High temperatures in the upper 50s to around 60 degrees.

Monday: Sunny start with increasing clouds, mainly late in the day. High temperatures in the upper 50s to around 60 degrees. Rain at night, some heavy.

Tuesday: Early morning rain. Otherwise, milder with a mix of sun and clouds. High temperatures in the lower 60s.

Wednesday: Cooler than recent days with lots of sunshine. High temperatures in the lower to middle 50s.
