The strong storm and severe weather outbreak on Thursday has been responsible for sending rain showers our way overnight. These will end in the morning, but the remaining energy has prompted a Wind Advisory for our region. This set up will also allow for strong winds to push in some very warm air for a few hours.
Our weekend will be split between a nice day on Saturday, then end with soggy Sunday that may bring some thunder. Here’s a quick look:
Thursday Evening Satellite Loop (Water Vapor)
Friday: Wind Advisory
The peak winds are expected to reach up to 50 mph in metro areas, while the mountains may reach up to 60 mph.
Wind Speed and Direction
The winds from the west are known as katabatibc winds. These winds compress as the move down from the mountains, which allow it to heat up.
Forecast Wind Gusts are expected to peak early in the afternoon.
Forecasts still hold the upper 70s, but I stand by the tendency for temps to verify higher than models show in set ups like this. That is why I continue to push the potential of 80ºF
Weekend Forecast Snapshot
- Saturday: Our nice day.
- Sunday: Our soggy day, which may have thunderstorms.
- Monday: Much cooler.
Sunday Forecast Map
A larger storm system will send in rain. The cold front may actually spark some thunderstorms.
I will have a full update in my Friday morning report.
