Rowan weather: Washed out weekend ahead
Maybe the sound of heavy rain woke you this morning. Those showers should taper off as the day goes on, but we’ll see some patchy fog throughout the day.
The high will be 61, with south southwest wind calming. It is also a code yellow air day for particle pollution, meaning unusually sensitive people may be affected.
Tonight will bring more fog, with mostly cloudy skies and a low of 50. The rain will amount to a tenth to a quarter inch.
The weekend, though, will be pretty much a washout. Saturday has a 60 percent chance of rain before 11, then showers, then patchy fog. It will be cloudy and 65, with south southwest wind around 5 mph. It will also be a code yellow air day. A tenth to a quarter inch of rain can be expected.
There’s a 90 percent chance or showers and thunderstorms Saturday night, especially in the early hours of Sunday. East southeast wind at 5-7 mph will shift to the south. A quarter to a half inch of rain is possible overnight.
Plan on rain for Sunday, which has a 100 percent chance of precipitation. It starts as showers, and may include a thunderstorm, then more thunderstorms and rain are possible in the afternoon. Some storms could become severe as a front moves across the area. Damaging winds and hail are the main threat, but a tornado cannot be ruled out.
Sunday night’s chance of rain is 80 percent, with a low of 49.
Monday has a 60 percent chance of showers, and will be mostly cloudy and 57. Finally, on Monday night, there’s no mention of rain. The low will be 42.
Tuesday will be sunny and 60, with a low of 41.
Wednesday will be mostly sunny and 64, with a low of 44.
And Thursday will also be mostly sunny, but cooler, with a high near 56.
