Changes Over the Weekend
5:00 p.m. Thursday 5 May 2016
Look for another clear and cool night with lows in the upper 40s to low 50s and very light winds.
Friday continues the recent string of sun-filled days; scattered high clouds may show up during the day so we will go with “mostly sunny”. Saturday also looks nice, but more on the windy side.
A large low aloft will track from near Las Vegas Saturday to the Plains by Monday. A trough extending southward from this low will provide strong lifting for thunderstorms Sunday night into Monday.
There’s some potential for severe weather at that time, but the parameters are not clear-cut and there should be a decent “cap” in place, so this forecast will require fine-tuning right up to the day of the event.
A dry southwesterly wind on Tuesday coupled with lots of sunshine could give us our first 90-degree day of the year over portions of the area. A weak front approaches Thursday so rain re-enters the forecast at that time.
So, bottom line is two more nice days followed by a rather unsettled pattern beginning Sunday.
Tonight: Clear and Cool…..Lows 48 to 52
Friday: Sunny…..Highs 82 east to 86 west
Saturday: Mostly sunny, breezy…57/85
Mother’s Day: Windy, 30% Storms, mainly west of Highway 75…64/81
Sunday Night and Monday: Windy, 50% Thunderstorms….Low 64, Highs 83
Tuesday: Mostly Sunny….66/90
Wednesday: 20% Showers…..68/88
Thursday: 30% Thunderstorms…..68/85
