A taste of summer this weekend – but it doesn’t last long

Weather Blog

If you have an opportunity to get outside and enjoy some nice weather, do it, because it won’t last long.

We start the weekend today with lots of sunshine with temperatures primarily in the lower to middle 70s, which is just a few degrees above where we should be.

Most of Sunday will see lots of sunshine as well; however, we will see clouds increase as we go through the afternoon with showers and thunderstorms becoming likely closer to sunset. Sunday will also see well-above normal temperatures with highs in many areas reaching the lower to middle 80s.

The Storm Prediction Center does have most of our area in a MARGINAL risk of severe thunderstorms, so we can’t rule that out. It looks like damaging winds will be the main threat with storms as we approach the evening hours Sunday.

Monday, we can expect another nice day with decent sunshine and highs in the 70s most-everywhere – possibly approaching the 80 degree mark in Southside.

Into Monday night, the chance of some showers, maybe a thunderstorm will re-enter the region, but I’m not anticipating any severe weather during this time. This will also usher in some much-cooler weather heading into the rest of the upcoming week. We should be remaining a tad bit unsettled as well.

Highs will cool back down into the 60s starting on Tuesday, possibly even staying in the 50s in the mountains.

We should gain a few degrees for Wednesday, only to fall back down a few more degrees for both Thursday and Friday.

Off and on shower chances will also be possible from mid-to-late week.

So, enjoy this weekend! Fire up the barbecue and spend some time outside!
