A 50-50 weekend: Saturday the drier half, Sunday will be wetter

The month of April wraps up today, a month that will meteorologically be remembered for its streakiness and its extremes. The first ten days of the month brought record cold and even some rare April snow. Ten consecutive days of sunshine then followed through the middle of April.

A few showers today then a rainy Sunday, but dry in between on Saturday

Let’s start off with the good news: The sun will come out tomorrow. Now I wouldn’t bet my bottom dollar on that, given this stubbornly gray, cool, and unsettled pattern. But I am cautiously optimistic that at least a little sun should prevail on Saturday, making it the better and drier half of what I call a “50-50” weekend. That leaves Sunday to be the wetter half, with periods of rain likely spelling a soggy start to the month of May.

A "50-50" weekend on the way weather-wise: Saturday better, Sunday wetter

For those with flexible outdoor plans this weekend, pick Saturday if possible. 

Posted: April 28, 2016

SATURDAY► The better weekend day, and one of the few dry days of the forecast.  Still lots of clouds, but a little sunshine.  Shower-free, if but for a day, so dry and continued cool with highs in the mid to upper 50s.  East-northeast onshore breezes around 10-15mph are back for yet another day.  The rain returns overnight Saturday night.

SUNDAY► Cloudy with periods of rain or rain showers throughout the day.  Highs in the low 60s, with an easterly wind shifting to the south around 10-15mph.

MONDAY► Mostly cloudy with the chance of showers lingering at least into the morning, perhaps drier by afternoon.  Highs around 60-65.

TUESDAY► Some sunshine for a change, let's optimistically go partly sunny and dry.  Highs in the low 60s.

LATER NEXT WEEK► Mostly cloudy with the chance of rain or rain showers Wednesday and Thursday.  Remaining cool with highs around 60.
