Thursday was another beautiful day across the area with temperatures right near normal levels for the end of June.
A cold front sweeping across the state through the wee hours of our Friday will support some rain showers. There is also an outside chance at hearing a rumble of thunder. Rainfall associated with the front won't be all that impressive, and certainly won't be enough to alleviate the one-to-two inch rainfall deficit for the month. Rainfall totals through midday Friday will only be on the order of one-tenth, to one-third of an inch.
By Friday afternoon, skies will be clearing across the ABC12 viewing area as the front moves off to the east. Winds will be in from the northwest behind the front, so high temperatures will retreat into the 70s.
Readings will move back into the 80s for the bulk of the holiday weekend with more sunshine prevailing. Not much rain is expected even into the middle part of next week. While there isn't a zero-percent chance of rain for next Wednesday & Thursday, it doesn't really look like a good chance at beneficial rain at this point. - JR
