5/13 – Rob Martin’s “Mixed Weekend Outlook” Friday Night Forecast

Flow around an upper-level low over the southeast will continue, bringing another round heavier showers and embedded thunderstorms Saturday. We can’t rule out an isolated severe storm in the mix, but it won’t be widespread. Gusty winds and small hail would be the main concerns from mid-afternoon to early evening. The morning hours look ok.

Once storms develop, expect them to linger at least until early evening before dissipating or moving into the coastal waters. Areal coverage would be expected to remain in the isolated to scattered ranges, primarily late afternoon/early evening.

With the additional expected cloud cover and convection, would expect most areas to see high temperatures remain in the 80s today, and the same goes for Sunday, although humidity will start to rise. The pattern weakens considerably on Sunday, so we’re down to 20% for storm chances then. But, Sunday could see some showers along the coast in the morning.

For next week, high pressure resumes control over the gulf, bringing widespread 90° temps all week. And this time around, it’ll be more humid than this last spell of similar temps. The summer feel draws closer.
