Wet Weekend then trending drier next week

(KNOE 8 WEATHER) - The last thing we needed was more rain, and that's exactly what we got! Right now year to date, we are sitting in an 8'' inch surplus of rain! This has been an unusually wet and cool August so far. This weekend we can expect to see the threat for showers and storms all weekend long. It won't rain everywhere all the time, but rain coverage will be around 50% of the viewing area. Next week there are signs that a ridge of high pressure will build in, if this transpires then we will see more sunshine and drier weather!
