Late Thursday PM June 30th Update – Rain Chances for the Holiday Weekend

Good late Thursday evening, everyone. Some spots ended up getting a few rounds of rain and t-storms today. Even with the morning round of scattered rain and t-storms, that didn’t stop us from warming up into the upper 80s to near 90°. We had another evening round of rain and t-storms and the last of that round is pushing out on the radar below…

Looking at the surface map below, we have two fronts to contend with as we start the holiday weekend. Our stationary front over our area is still sticking around while another front up north is working in…

These two fronts will work together to keep rain and t-storm chances around as we go into the day on Friday. We should start quiet in the morning, then see another round of rain and t-storms in the afternoon and evening…

With a little more cloud cover and an east breeze with the t-storm chances, that should result in afternoon highs in the lower to middle 80s…

We’ll repeat Friday’s setup over again for Saturday. For Saturday, though, we should have some t-storms around for Saturday morning followed by a break by lunch time and another round of afternoon t-storms…

We’ll be a little warmer Saturday but not by much. Highs should top out in the middle to upper 80s on Saturday…

I expect our best rain chances for the holiday weekend to be on Sunday under mostly cloudy skies and highs back in the lower 80s. We dry out during the day on the 4th of July and should keep things quiet that Monday night. After we get rid of the rain chances Monday, we’ll see highs go back into the middle 90s by the middle of next week.

LONG RANGE FORECAST: Based off of the HP(Heady Pattern)

SLIGHT CHANCES:  MEAN IT IS A WEAKER SYSTEM THAT WILL GIVE US SCATTERED SHOWERS OR SNOW SHOWERS. 

IF I DON’T SAY SLIGHT:  THAT MEANS THIS IS A STRONGER SYSTEM

July 5th-9th:  The heat kicks back in by the middle of the week.  Also chances for thunderstorms return for the second half of the week.

July 10th-16th:  The heat returns and mainly dry through the week.

July 17th-23rd:  The first half of the week will by hot and mainly dry.  Temperatures will drop into the warm category for the second half of the week with scattered thunderstorms from Wednesday through Saturday.
