WEATHER-CHROMA

<THIS WEEKEND WILL BE WARM WITH HIGHS IN THE LOW 80S BOTH SATURDAY AND SUNDAY AND THE HUMIDITY WILL BE QUITE HIGH AS WELL SO IT WILL FEEL EVEN WARMER THAN IT REALLY IS. WE COULD SEE A FEW SHOWERS OR THUNDERSTORMS SATURDAY AFTERNOON INTO THE EARLY EVENING BUT I DO NOT EXPECT A LOT OF WIDESPREAD RAIN. SO IF YOU HAVE OUTDOOR PLANS YOU MAY HAVE TO BRIEFLY DODGE A FEW SHOWERS SO KEEP AN UMBRELLA HANDY JUST IN CASE. RAIN CHANCES WILL INCREASE ON SUNDAY AS A STORM SYSTEM PASSES TO OUR NORTH. THE BEST CHANCE OF RAIN WILL PROBABLY STAY NORTH OF OUR AREA BUT A WEAK COLD FRONT WILL BE IN THE AREA AND THAT SHOULD CAUSE A FEW EXTRA SHOWERS OR STORMS TO DEVELOP. AND THE CHANCE FOR RAIN ON SUNDAY WILL BE ANYTIME DURING THE DAY TOO; NOT JUST THE AFTERNOON LIKE YOU WOULD EXPECT THIS TIME OF YEAR. THE WARM AND MUGGY WEATHER WILL CONTINUE THROUGH THE MIDDLE OF NEXT WEEK WITH HIGHS IN THE LOW 80S AND LOWS IN THE MID 60S. A FEW SHOWERS WILL BE POSSIBLE DURING THE AFTERNOON HOURS MONDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY. SOME CHANGES MAY OCCUR BY THE END OF NEXT WEEK WITH SOME OF THE COMPUTER MODELS SHOWING A LARGE STORM SYSTEM DEVELOP TO OUR NORTH. IF THIS OCCURS WE COULD SEE ANOTHER ROUND OF COOL WEATHER RETURN BY LATE IN THE WEEK TO NEXT WEEKEND. FOR NOW I'LL CALL FOR A SLIGHT DROP IN TEMPERATURES BUT NOT TO THE DEGREE THAT THE COMPUTER MODELS ARE SHOWING; STAY TUNED THE FORECAST CERTAINLY COULD CHANGE. DON'T FORGET ABOUT OUR FREE WEATHER APP, YOU CAN USE IT THIS WEEKEND TO SEE THE LATEST RADAR VIEW ANYTIME. >
