FRIDAY’S SUNSET: 8:01 PM

Stray showers and isolated thunderstorm into Friday evening and overnight. Staying under partly to mostly cloudy conditions with patchy fog late. Lows in the mid to upper 60s.

Slow-moving disturbance over the region Saturday brings the chance for showers and thunderstorms, mainly during peak heating hours. Plenty of moisture over the region for thunderstorms to tap into. Average rainfall around 0.10-0.25″, but isolated higher amounts possible in any thunderstorm that develops. Highs into the upper 70s to lower 80s and feeling humid. Isolated shower may linger overnight. Otherwise, mostly cloudy and lows into the mid to upper 60s.

Updated Henri track as of 11 PM Friday:

Models now showing Henri tracking farther west, closer to the coast. Moisture from Henri moves into the region Sunday and Monday. At this vantage point, it looks like the heaviest rain will still fall east of the viewing area. Still, seeing showers and thunderstorms Sunday and Monday. With our recent rain events this week, any rain right now is not needed. This will be something we will keep our eye on this weekend, providing updates as needed.
