Chance of Afternoon Shower/Possible Thunderstorm
The day started out rather dreary and gloomy, but by the afternoon hours, we were enjoying our usual intermittent blue skies in between towering cumulus clouds. Athens hit a high of 90°F, which is right on the dot in terms of normal temperatures for this time of year. How is tomorrow shaping up? Well, a lot like today, actually. Check it out below.
Tonight: Patchy fog setting in after midnight. Partly cloudy with a southwest wind around 5 mph. Low near 72°F.
Sunday: Patchy morning fog. Partly cloudy skies with a chance of showers and a possible thunderstorm. High near 91°F.
Tonight will be on par with the usual. The remaining few showers in the area will die off as we lose daytime instability and make way for partly cloudy skies. The high moisture and lack of wind speeds will allow overnight fog to develop. Low temperatures will be in the low 70s.
Tomorrow will be pretty similar to today in terms of chance for rain and afternoon high temperatures. Models hint at the more northern areas of the state seeing rain, but a rogue shower or thunderstorm can’t be ruled out for Athens and our forecast area. Furthermore, given the lack of upper level winds and the high levels of humidity in the region, any storm that does form should be expected to drop a fair amount of rain over a short time. Check back tomorrow for updates throughout the day. High temperatures will be in the low 90s.

It can be entertaining when technical difficulties occur, but it can be even funnier when it happens to a broadcast meteorologist. Cory McCloskey takes it in stride on live air at Fox 10 Phoenix.
