Weather Now: Cloudy But Dry Tonight; Scattered Showers For Sunday

Pinpoint Weather Alerts

Well, Saturday was definitely one of the best beach days we’ve had all summer. Unfortunately, changes are on the way for the second half of the weekend in the form of clouds and scattered showers.

HOUR BY HOUR: Conditions for the next 36 hours »

Dry conditions continue through tonight but clouds will be on the increase. Warm and dry too. Temperatures will fall into the mid-60s by daybreak.

As we head into Sunday morning, a round of showers and embedded thunder will move through, especially by 10AM. The shower chance continues though for the afternoon as well.

Highs will top out in the mid and upper 70s for your Sunday. The shower chances continue for the afternoon and evening. We may be able to get some sunshine later in the afternoon.

Unfortunately, we were spoiled on Saturday with a great beach day. Sunday won’t be nearly as nice. Skies will be mostly cloudy with spotty showers around. Temperatures will be in the mid-70s.

Just like the beach, its not a good day to be out on the water. A Small Craft Advisory is in effect for choppy waves and scattered showers and storms. Winds will also be quite gusty out of the southwest between 15 and 20 knots. Gusts up to 30 knots are possible.

THIS WEEKEND: Beautiful Saturday, Scattered Showers/T’Storms Sunday

We have a beautiful summer day lined up for Saturday. The humidity will be low, with sunshine and storm-free weather through the day and night.

A frontal system will approach on Sunday, bringing the risk for a few showers and isolated strong thunderstorms. While it won’t be a “washout”, we’ll see a few showers possible as early as mid/late morning. An additional passing shower or thunderstorm may move through during the afternoon.

Showers enter the state from the west and move through during the early morning hours. They’ll be quick moving though as the first round of showers and downpours move out by mid-day.

The shower chances continue into the afternoon and evening, but will be very hit or miss.
