30% Rain Early
So close yet so far.
Models have finally come to some sort of agreement regarding this approaching storm, and unfortuantely for us, we're going to more or less be on the outside looking in. The system is currently moving in from the northwest on a southeast trajectory. As it stands now, the bulk of the activity is going to stay down to our southwest near the Emporia area, leaving Lawrence and surrounding towns on the fringes. Scattered showers are possible in the overnight hours, mainly 11pm and later, but it won't be anything too impressive. By sunrise Friday a chunk of the action may break off and move closer towards us, primarily impacting portions of southern Douglas County. Otherwise the first half of the day will be mostly cloudy with a small possibility a shower will pop up. Friday evening looks to be mostly dry, so any Friday night plans you have should be good to go for most of the night!
As for the weekend, Saturday is looking dry during the daytime, but a passing thunderstorm will try to work its way over before sunrise. Early morning cloud cover Saturday could help to prevent temperatures from rising very high, with temps ranging from the mid to upper 80s. Sunday is the better opportunity for precipitation this weekend, as another blob of rain will impact areas primarily to our southwest in the very early morning, with another round working its way through late Sunday night into Monday morning.
Looking forward a bit, the eighth month of the year is going to start off calm, but hot. Temperatures will yet again rise into the middle 90s. Thankfully, this stretch of hot weather is showing signs of not last as long as last week's, nor being as hot. We'll have to monitor this closely, as things can change.
Friday's almost here! Who else is excited?
