Weekend Outlook: August 19-22, 2022

“When in drought, leave it out.” It’s an old phrase forecasters have used for quite a long time. What it means, is that when you’re in drought, rainfall will be tough to come by, so leave it out of the forecast. We found that out a few days ago when all of the models were forecasting a decent amount of rain for this area and we got little to none. Well, we’re not looking at much, if any, rainfall this weekend either.

Low pressure finally pulls away tonight and then skies start to clear out. High pressure builds in for Friday and into the weekend with dry and very warm conditions. As the high moves off to the east, humidity levels will creep up for Saturday and Sunday. Some clouds are expected on Saturday as a weak low pressure system passes well to the south. Clouds will stream back in on Monday as another frontal system moves in from the west. It could produce a few showers later Monday, but we wouldn’t count on it.
