TODAY: Hot again with 90s area wide, mid and upper 90s to our eastern counties. Southwest wind will be a light breeze 10-15mph.
TONIGHT: A quick moving disturbance will bring a good chance for heavy rainfall into the area. Rain chances should hold off for the High School Football games, but it will still be quite warm out there. A little before midnight showers and storms will be moving into our southwestern counties pushing northeast. Coverage and intensity will likely increase with pockets of heavy rain and possible small hail. Like we had early this week some locations could exceed half an inch in a short period of time.
SATURDAY: Showers and storms will likely continue into the morning hours. These chances diminish into the early afternoon hours before returning with some isolated to scattered storms in the late afternoon and evening hours. Partly to mostly cloudy with the high dropping to near 85 with a south/southeast wind 12-20mph.
THROUGH NEXT WEEK: The nation will be split with two storm systems. Possible record heat and dry to the southeast, possible record cold and with heavy snow to the northwest. Our region in between these systems bringing a surplus of Pacific moisture. This will lead to multiple days with showers and storms producing heavy rainfall. Long range models are still in a disagreement on where the higher amounts of rain will be, but still keeps chances in our area. Temperatures will be back to average with highs in the upper 70s and low 80s.
Have a great weekend! Matt with the next updated forecast tonight on the News at Nine.
