Clouds dominate Saturday with early showers, then widely scat’d PM storms Sat and Sun PM, some sun on Sunday…

Low pressure influences our weather to begin the weekend, and a warm front will move through very early Saturday morning. Showers associated with it will end very early in the day, then cloudy or mostly cloudy PM with isolated to widely scattered t-storms possible. Saturday will not be a washout by any means however. Variable clouds on Sunday with seasonably warm temperatures, although the trailing cold front will bring the opportunity for scattered PM thunderstorms, but again, not a washout.

High pressure moves in on Monday and Tuesday, with mostly sunny skies expected Monday and a bit cooler, and then partly cloudy on Tuesday. Wednesday we’ll see slightly warmer temperatures with high pressure moving offshore and a resultant southwesterly wind flow developing, and that warmer look continues on Thursday with isolated PM thunderstorms possible ahead of another frontal boundary. The front does nothing to reduce temperatures, in fact Friday is even hotter with highs reaching the lower 90s. This will be the start of a long stretch of hotter than average weather into the first week of July, where many above average highs will be common.
