Weekend Weather: More Clouds And Humid, But A Beautiful Sunday

It's another Friday and that means the weekend is upon us. Sunday is definitely going to be the pick of the weekend, with dry weather, lots of sunshine and low humidity. Before we get there, we have to go through a couple of humid days and potentially a couple showers and storms.

After a few morning showers today, there's another chance of afternoon showers or a thunderstorm. Unlike the past couple of days, which have featured a lot of sunshine, today will actually have more clouds than blue sky.

Feeling Like Summer

Humidity levels today are going to be on the higher side with tropical moisture in place. This air mass will also continue overnight and into tomorrow.

On Saturday we will watch a cold front approach the area from the West; this is what will bring our nice day on Sunday. Depending on the exact time the frontal system arrives tomorrow will determine whether or not we have severe weather or just a line of clouds and a couple of showers.

Severe Weather Or Not?

In order for there to be a widespread thunderstorm outbreak, the atmosphere has to be primed with sunshine during the first part of the day and then the front has to come through at the right time with the right amount of energy. Keep an eye to the sky tomorrow (and the radar) as there could be some severe weather developing.

Sunday Is Best

Whatever happens we are almost assuredly going to have a great day on Sunday and much of that dry weather continues next week.
