Better Rain Chances for the Weekend

WEEKEND WEATHER: The ridge weakens, opening the door for the return of scattered showers and thunderstorms. Best chance of a passing shower or storm will come during the afternoon and evening hours, but we can’t rule out a late night or morning shower. Highest coverage will come Sunday, but even then it won’t rain everywhere due to the scattered nature of summer thunderstorms. Unfortunately it is impossible to forecast placement and timing of summer storms, but if you have something planned outdoors just be aware that a rain delay is very possible. Expect a high between 92 and 95 tomorrow, and closer to 90 Sunday with a mix of sun and clouds both days.

SOLAR WIND SPARKS SOUTHERN LIGHTS: A high-speed stream of solar wind is buffeting Earth’s magnetic field on July 8th. This is causing minor geomagnetic storms and colorful auroras in the southern hemisphere. NOAA forecasters say there is a 50% chance of additional storms today (July 8), waning to 25% tomorrow (July 9) as Earth exits the solar wind stream.

FOR NEXT WEEK: Heading deeper into the month of July it looks as though a fairly typical and standard mid-summer weather pattern is expected. Each day you can expect partly sunny, hot, humid day, with the risk of scattered, mainly afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms. Afternoon highs will be in the lower to mid 90s, while nights will be fair and very muggy with 70s for lows.

Have a wonderful weekend!!!
