    A line of showers with embedded t-storms pushed west-to-east across the WAFB viewing area this morning, delivering rains of 0.5” to 1.0” for much of the area. Since then, it has been a pattern of mild temperatures with clearing skies through the afternoon as we await a frontal passage. The last of the high clouds should be exiting the area this evening and we go to clear skies overnight. It gets noticeably cooler too overnight, too.

    Few showers SaturdayFew showers Saturday

    Tonight we will still have many clouds around us, but the rain chances are low. There were a few small showers that popped up during the day, but they have come to an end. There is the possibility of some fog overnight, especially near the coast. Temperatures will remain warm, with lows only in the lower 70s. This weekend will bring more rain, particularly on Sunday. Saturday’s rain chances are still up to 30%, so we could have a few small showers during the day.
