Rowan weather: OK until Saturday, then soggy

Today and Friday should be sunny and near 52, but if you have big plans for Saturday, you’re going to get wet.

Today should be partly sunny with a breeze from the north northeast. Tonight, we go down to 32 again.

Friday will be sunny, with more of those north northeast breezes. Trouble starts Friday night, with a low of 36 and a 30 percent chance of rain.

We have a 90 percent chance of rain Saturday, with a high of just 41. The rain tapers off Saturday night, with a 40 percent chance, but it will be cold, too, with a low of 33.

The National Weather Service is not using the S word anywhere, sorry.

Sunday, partly sunny skies return, with a high near 48. Then we’re back to a 30 percent chance of rain Sunday night, with a low of 35.

That leads to a 40 percent chance of rain Monday, with a high near 47 and mostly cloudy skies. Monday night, the chance of rain is 30 percent, with a low of 37.

And it just gets wetter from here. Tuesday, we have a 40 percent chance of rain, with a high of 52. Tuesday night, the chance of rain goes up to 60 percent, with a low around 42.

There’s a 50 percent chance of rain on Wednesday, with partly sunny skies and a high near 53.

If we’re lucky, the sun will return for Christmas day.
