Forecast Last Updated at Saturday, August 8, 2020 at 6:20AM

Drier Reprieve

After a showery/thundery period, we conclude the week with more sunshine, reduced rain chances and slightly lower humidity levels. The threat for a pop-up shower or thundershower is not at absolute zero this weekend, but it’s low enough that we’re going to dust off the 5-Golfball rating to demonstrate the drier, pleasant conditions for Saturday and Sunday. PM shower & thunderstorm coverage gradually ticks back up again as we move into next week.

Forecast Discussion

After being subjected to tortuous “scattered showers and thunderstorms” verbiage in the forecast for days on end, we spice things up a little with a generally dry forecast for the weekend period. In reality, the threat for a pop-up PM shower this weekend is probably about 10 percent, but it’s low enough that we thought we could give you a break. ;)

The briefly drier weekend air mass won’t be around too long, however, as all good things must come to an end. The Bermuda High reasserts itself, and all the while a cold front sags into the Ohio Valley area next week and becomes nearly stationary just to our north.

Increasing “moisture flux” (a fancy weather term used to describe the increase in moisture throughout a depth of the atmosphere) will be the result, and this will increase our daily threat for PM showers and thunderstorms as we move into midweek and beyond.

Temperatures will run slightly above normal throughout the period, but nothing oppressively hot is anticipated.
