Rowan weather: May see a storm today

We have a 40 percent chance of scattered showers and storms today, and some could have damaging winds and frequent lightning. Storms will taper off this evening.

It will be cloudy today, with a high of 85. Rainfall totals will be between a tenth and a quarter of an inch. The 40 percent chance of rain continues tonight, with a low around 68.

Friday has a 20 percent chance of showers and storms, but it will be partly sunny and 86. Friday night, too, has a slight chance of showers, with a low of 67.

Saturday will be sunny with a high of 89 and a low of 67, and Sunday will be the same with a high of 89 and a low of 68.

Monday will be mostly sunny, with a high of 91 and a low of 69.

Then it will be 91 again Tuesday, with more sun. A 30 percent chance of showers and storms is possible Tuesday night, with a low around 69.

And Wednesday looks a lot like Monday — mostly sunny and a high near 91.

It doesn’t look like the rain, if we get any, will make any dent in the drought.
