The weekend is starting out sunny, with comfortable temperatures and low humidity before a chance of showers moves in on Sunday, the National Weather Service said.
“It’s going to be pretty dry today, actually. Low humidity... pretty comfortable,” said National Weather Service meteorologist Kevin Cadima.
Friday is expected to be sunny, with high temperatures in the low 80s over most of the inland region, and a little cooler, in the high 70s, near the coast.
Saturday will likely be similar, though warmer. “Humidity is going to be increasing a little bit [Saturday], but it won’t be oppressive,” Cadima said.
By the overnight hours on Saturday, showers and storms are possible, mainly after 2 a.m. The weather service is not currently warning of strong or severe storms, but Cadima said “any storms can produce locally heavy downpours, especially with the rising humidity.”
Sunday will probably be cloudy, with a good chance of scattered showers and thunderstorms. The region is most likely to experience rain in the morning, Cadima said, and “there might actually be some drying in the afternoon,” though he did not expect to see any sunshine on Sunday.
Showers and storms are likely to continue through Monday and Tuesday.
“Through early next week, we’re kind of in an unsettled weather pattern,” Cadima said, making for cloudy skies and scattered storms.
