Weekend Outlook: Timing is everything

Every day this long weekend runs the risk of rainfall at some point

Every day this long weekend runs the risk of rainfall at some point. My hope is that the rain times out in a way that gives us a chance to enjoy some sunshine and seasonal temperatures. 

IF (and that's a BIG IF) rain can hold off until Saturday night then we should have a decent day. IF rain ends early Sunday, then we may salvage the rest of the day, and finally, IF you can dodge between the scattered showers on Monday, then your long weekend just may be drier than the picture the overall graphical forecast suggests.

Friday starts out chilly with patchy frost and morning lows near freezing. Lots of sunshine will help the mercury climb to near seasonal temperatures in the afternoon with a light northerly breeze.

Saturday will start out sunny as clouds gradually build through the day. Daytime highs will climb into the mid-teens with gusty southeast winds. Widespread rain moves in during the evening and continues overnight with the risk of lightning.

Sunday will start out with rain and isolated storms that will taper off during the day. We might see some late day sun with temperatures in the low teens.

For the holiday Monday, we will see cooler than normal temperatures with scattered showers on and off all day. There should be some sunny breaks between the showers.

Unfortunately, below seasonal temperatures linger across the region for the start of next week.
