A front will push into the state from the west late this afternoon and tonight, but we do not see any fantastic threat of rain from this front. Clouds, yes. Rain, no. Most models think there is very little available moisture. However, forecast that are promoting bigger chances of rain are basically running with the GFS lock, stock and barrel.
We continue to see above normal temps tomorrow and Friday. Unsettled weather will try to develop to the west, but as it moves east into the state late Friday afternoon and evening, moisture seems to dissipate dramatically, such that we think chances of rain are very minor overnight Friday night. WE would lean toward a completely dry forecast picture there too. Now…it is not likely we get through tonight and Friday night with absolutely no rain statewide…but moisture will be at a premium.
Dry for the balance of the weekend through Monday .Tuesday and Wednesday of next week look a little more interesting, as we see some scattered showers and thunderstorms trying to develop. Coverage will be under 40%, and there is not much organization to the moisture at this point, but it will be the next period we try and keep an eye on, around the 11th.
For the rest of the 10 day window, we see mostly dry weather for midweek next week. And then the extended window shows only minor action with an upper level ridge holding past mid-month.
