will be another quiet summer day and then the questions begin for Saturday.

Our data for Saturday is scattered all over the place causing a lot of head-scratching as to how much rain Saturday will bring.

If the rain materializes, the most likely period will be during the early morning hours.

This could also be followed up by a late-day thunderstorm.

If given the choice, your safer bet is still Sunday for outdoor plans, although this will also be the first day we see highs in the 90s again since last Sunday.

Looking beyond, the first half of next week also appears to be relatively quiet.
