Rowan weather: Typical summertime pattern

Some of Rowan County enjoyed a brief rain last night, though it did little to cool things off. At least it was a break from the unrelenting dry, hot days.

Today, the chance of showers and thunderstorms is up to 40 percent, and could start as early as 10 a.m. It will be partly sunny, with a high of 89.

Any storms this afternoon and evening could have heavy winds and rain, along with cloud to ground lightning. Expect another 40 percent chance of rain tonight, with a low of 68.

It’s back to a 30 percent chance of storms and showers Wednesday, again under partly sunny skies, with a high of 90. The 30 percent chance of rain sticks around Wednesday night, with a low of 71.

Thursday afternoon has a 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms, and it will be a partly sunny day, with a high near 90. The chance of rain goes up to 40 percent Thursday night, with a low of 70.

Friday should be mostly sunny and 87, with a 30 percent chance of showers moving in Friday night and a low of 67.

It will be clear and mostly sunny Saturday, with a high of 88 and a low of 68.

Here comes the 30 percent chance of showers and storms back for Sunday, with partly sunny skies and a high near 86. Sunday night, too, has a chance of rain, with a low of 67.

And Monday looks a lot like Sunday, partly sunny, 87, with a 30 percent chance of rain.

Let’s hope the highs in the 90s are going to taper off soon.
