Soggy at times during the day, but drying out this evening.
Slow moving showers and thunderstorms moved into the area overnight, dropping a bit of heavy rain in parts of Taylor and Price counties. Expected periods of showers and storms this morning under mostly cloudy skies. As the low pressure system pushes east this afternoon, showers and storms will become more scattered before tapering off late in the afternoon or early in the evening. Highs today will be a bit cooler in the upper 60s to low 70s. Skies will clear out this evening into tonight with patchy dense fog developing. We’ll start the day Saturday with mostly sunny skies, but turn partly cloudy in the afternoon with a small chance of a pop up shower or storm. However, most of the area should remain dry with highs around 80.
Clouds will increase Saturday night as showers and thunderstorms approach the area and move in by daybreak Sunday. Scattered rain and thunder will continue through midday Sunday, but a cold front moving through should end the wet weather during the afternoon. Skies will turn partly cloudy late in the day with highs in the mid to upper 70s. High pressure will build in for Sunday night and Monday with sunny to partly cloudy skies expected and a brief period of lower humidity. Humidity levels will start to climb late in the day Monday with highs in the low 80s.
Tuesday will be warm and humid with partly sunny skies and a 40% chance of showers and storms with highs in the low 80s. High pressure will then build in for Wednesday and Thursday, bringing more sunshine and less humid conditions to the area. Highs will be in the mid to upper 70s.
