Rowan weather: Not much change

Welcome to Friday and the eventual start of your weekend. It may be a damp Saturday, but a 50 or even 60 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms doesn’t mean it will happen where you are.
Scattered showers and storms can be expected today, with mostly cloudy skies and a high near 87. Today’s chance of rain is 50 percent, and it carries into tonight. Some places may see fog early Saturday. Tonight’s low will be only 70 degrees, and winds will be calm.
Saturday, the National Weather Service says there’s a 60 percent chance of showers and storms, particularly in the afternoon. Some storms could drop heavy rainfall. It will be mostly cloudy again, with a high near 85. It’s going to feel quite muggy.
The chance of rain is slightly lower Saturday night, around 50 percent. More heavy rainfall is a possibility, with a low of 68.
Mostly cloudy skies continue Sunday, with a 30 percent chance of showers and storms and a high of 85. Sunday night we still have a 30 percent chance of rain, with a low near 68.
We’ll have a 30 percent chance of showers and storms, your standard summer day forecast, Monday, Monday night, all day Tuesday, Wednesday and even Thursday.
Monday’s high will be near 88, with storms possible in the afternoons. Monday night’s low will be around 70. Tuesday will be mostly sunny and hot, with a high around 90. Low will be a sticky 71.
It’s 90 degrees again for Wednesday, mostly sunny skies, and another low of 70. Thursday will be just as hot, with a high near 90.
As we go into July, prepare yourself for typical hot, muggy weather. Traditionally, July is the hottest month in Rowan, slightly edging out August. We had our longest day of the year — in terms of daylight — on June 21, so you may begin to notice a gradual change as we move through the summer.
