We need some rain, and there’s some in the forecast, but we need a lot more.
With high pressure sliding offshore, a warming trend is expected for Friday into Saturday, along with an increase in humidity levels. We’ll remain sunny on Friday, but may see a few more clouds on Saturday. A shower or thunderstorm may pop up here or there on Saturday, but they’ll be few and far between.
By Sunday, things start to change. An upper-level disturbance will head toward the region, bringing us more clouds, along with some showers and thunderstorms. A few of them may produce gusty winds and downpours, but this does not look like a widespread severe outbreak. It also doesn’t look like the widespread rain that we need, but every little bit helps. A cold front then moves through on Monday, with more showers and thunderstorms possible.
Thursday night: Clear skies. Low 55-62.
Friday: Sunshine and a few afternoon clouds. High 83-90.
Friday night: Clear to partly cloudy. Low 61-68.
Saturday: A mix of sun and clouds, slight chance for an afternoon shower or thunderstorm. High 81-88.
Saturday night: Partly cloudy. Low 61-68.
Sunday: Partly sunny, showers and thunderstorms possible in the afternoon. High 83-90.
Sunday night: Partly cloudy. Low 65-72.
Monday: A mix of sun and clouds, afternoon showers and thunderstorms possible. High 83-90.
In the tropics, Tropical Depression 14 is moving into the western Caribbean and Tropical Depression 13 is approaching the Leeward Islands. The former will be a threat to parts of Central America and the Yucatan Peninsula this weekend, and the latter to the Leeward Islands as well as Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. We’ll have a much more detailed blog post about the tropics Friday afternoon or evening.
