Saturday named a First Warning Alert Day

Two features at play will be impacting our weather this weekend: Tropical Storm Ophelia and high pressure to our west.

Ophelia’s northern moisture shield continues to spread moisture in our direction from the south. Clouds and rain will be most likely with this storm south of I-90 during the day today, with showers less likely for areas north until tonight. Highs will remain cool in the lower to middle 60s due to thick cloud cover. Overnight lows won’t fall too far into the 50s.

With the storm center itself moving closer to the area Sunday, there is a good chance of showers region-wide. Highs will remain in the 60s as a result of cloud cover and rain.

An isolated shower or two is still possible Monday, otherwise we’ll see a mix of sun and clouds and highs in the uppers 60s to near 70 for next week.
