Saturday Better Than Sunday Some Sun Saturday Afternoon
If you are thinking about doing anything outdoors Saturday is going to be the better of the two days. There is a chance we could see improving weather conditions Sunday afternoon as we squeeze another round of rain in between. That would be later Saturday night until midday Sunday. First things first though is tonight where some showers and a thunderstorm are possible, mainly after 10 or 11 pm and done by 7am Saturday.
We remain socked in with clouds this evening and we did have a few showers go by this afternoon. Those are now to the east. Meanwhile to the west we see an area of showers and thunderstorms in West Virginia and Western Pennsylvania moving eastward. This is our rain for overnight into early Saturday morning and it should be on the order of a quarter of an inch or so. There is the outside chance for a thunderstorm. This does not look like a widespread rain event for overnight.

If everything moves along we should see brightening of skies and some breaks of sunshine Saturday afternoon with highs in the mid 60s to near 70. If you head to the East End Saturday highs there will be in the 50s to near 60. Clouds may be more stubborn over the twin forks. Then it is on to the next system for late Saturday night into Sunday afternoon where we see cloudy skies, and onshore wind and rain. Highs Sunday will be mostly in the 50s.
We see improvement coming on Monday with some sunshine and highs in the upper 60s and lower 70s. Long range we see another high building across Southern Canada later next week and the onshore flow comes back by Wednesday along with chances for rain later in the week.
