Maybe good news for the weekend!

From Tim in Duncan From Tim in Duncan

The once rainy forecast is looking a little different for the weekend!  We still have a while for the models to make up their minds, but for now our forecast models are all trending toward a "less heavy rain" solution.  In fact, some areas could stay totally dry on Saturday, then just see a few passing showers on Sunday.  Yesterday it was looking like 2 distinct rounds of heavy rain.

GFS model keeps Friday dry, then most of the rain south of 85 on Saturday.  Sunday would bring a few light showers, and possibly a few flurries late day for the northern Upstate. 

Euro shows a TINY bit of moisture for Thursday night/Friday AM, which would fall as light rain or snow.  Then it has heavy rain south of I85 on Saturday.  It's a bit wetter than GFS, but still keeps the bulk of the heavy rain south of us.  Then Sunday would be mostly dry.

Canadian shows a totally dry weekend, with the exception of a couple of showers for the extreme southern Upstate on Saturday. 

Therefore, we have 3 models that have trended drier... so I'm lowering rain chances from about 70-80% to 30-50%.  We'll see how the trend holds up.
