Rowan weather: Rainy weekend ahead

Published 12:00 am Wednesday, August 6, 2014

We’re back into full summer mode today with mostly sunny skies and a high of 90 degrees. A 20 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms creeps in tonight, and some of those storms could pack a punch. The low will be around 67.
Today and Thursday, we can expect moderate air quality, but Friday looks like a good air day. We’ll have a very high UV index today, so be sure to protect yourself from the sun.
Thursday will be mostly sunny again with a high near 86 and a low near 68.
Then the trouble starts. Friday has a 50 percent chance of showers, under partly sunny skies and a high near 83. Friday night, the chance of showers goes up to 60 percent, with a low of 66.
And that 60 percent chance of showers could dampen the weekend. Saturday will be cloudy with a high near 75 and a low around 65. Sunday includes a 60 percent chance of thunderstorms, with a high near 76 under cloudy skies.
Sunday night, the chance for showers and storms drops to 40 percent. The low will be around 66.
The 40 percent chance of rain continues into Monday, when it will be mostly cloudy with a high near 81. The low will be around 67, with the chance of rain again at 40 percent.
Tuesday will be a turnaround with mostly sunny skies, a high near 84 and just a 30 percent chance of showers.
