Patrick Rockey’s Live VIPIR Forecast

Storms and then 70s!

Expect another round of showers and storms this afternoon and evening as a cold front plows into our soupy air mass. There’s plenty of moisture, so some slow-moving storms could cause localized flooding. And some larger hail is also possible, along with brief, gusty winds.

Behind that front, expect clearing skies and lower temperatures and humidity on Wednesday. It’s definitely the pick weather day this week, with lots of sunshine and highs in the mid 70s.

We’ll hold on to the milder weather on Thursday and Friday, but we may not stay dry. A fast-moving area of low pressure will slip by to our south. But it will be close enough to bring us extra clouds on Thursday and the chance at some showers late Thursday and early Friday. Expect highs on both days in the low-to-mid 70s.

Right now, the long holiday weekend is looking pretty great. We expect lots of sunshine, with highs in the 60s on Saturday, 70s on Sunday and 80s on Monday. Stay tuned.
