Good Saturday Evening!
A weak disturbance brought scattered showers and storms to portions of the area, mainly south of I-70, while leaving us with a blanket of clouds and cool evening breeze that will keep temperatures from falling below around 65 overnight.
Another upper-air system will move across the lower Lakes on Sunday, triggering a few showers and embedded storms, but there will again be many of dry hours, with spotty rain coverage. The temperature should warm a little back into the seasonable low 80s with breaks of sun. A few showers will linger into the evening hours until the system exits to the east.
A similar scenario is likely to play out on Labor Day, with another impulse bringing scattered showers and storms, but still much of the day will be dry and moisture will push southeast by late afternoon.
Warmer temperatures on Tuesday will be followed by a significant cooldown behind a cold front, ushering in the coolest weather of the season in time for the first week of September.
Dorian remains an intense Category 4 hurricane (150 mph) drifting northwest toward the northern Bahamas. Latest model guidance takes the storm near the Florida coast early Tuesday, but with a likely northward turn that could skirt the peninsula.
Have a great weekend! -Ben
