Weekend Outlook: April 28-May 1, 2023

Friday is looking like a really nice day, so you’d better enjoy it, because the rest of the weekend isn’t looking so great.

Drought conditions are beginning to develop across parts of the region. This weekend’s rain will help alleviate that. Image provided by the National Drought Mitigation Center.

The upper-level low pressure that’s been hanging around all week will finally move away and high pressure builds in tonight into Friday with drier and milder conditions. Friday like starts with some sunshine, but clouds will increase and thicken up during the afternoon and evening as low pressure begins to slowly move this way. The high will keep the rain shield from the low at bay for a while, but showers should eventually develop Saturday afternoon and continue into Sunday morning. Sunday may not be that bad of a day, but it certainly isn’t looking great. As the first system moves out, a second, more potent one, will begin to approach. Most of the rain from that system will hold off until Sunday night, so the bulk of Sunday will be just cloudy, but there will be enough moisture around for some drizzle and possibly a few showers. Rain is likely Sunday morning, ending by midday Monday, with some sunny breaks developing in the afternoon.

Sunday afternoon may end up dry, but not all the models agree on that. Images provided by Pivotal Weather.
