Today's Forecast

Today's Forecast Image
  • 82°
  • 65°

We're experiencing a serious case of deja vu today as an eerily similar looking storm system to the one that impacted our Wednesday is moving in for our Thursday. We'll have occasional hazy sunshine through the day with spotty light rain showers in the morning and then scattered thunderstorms in the area for the afternoon and early evening. High temperatures will be in the low to mid 80s with heavy humidity that will make it feel like the upper 80s in the afternoon.

High pressure will quickly settle in behind that storm system on Friday and will hang around through the weekend, bringing quiet sunshine to the region. High temperatures will be in the mid 80s with light winds.

The next chance of rain comes late Sunday evening when an approaching cold front may produce some scattered thunderstorms in the area. More widespread thunderstorms will be possible through Monday with high temperatures in the mid 70s.

We'll have drier, cooler, and less humid weather for much of next week with high temperatures in the mid and upper 70s for Tuesday and Wednesday and then low 80s for the end of the week.
