Today's Forecast

Today's Forecast Image
  • 72°
  • 50°

We have yet another bright and pleasant, but unseasonably cool day in store for us today as strong high pressure remains anchored in the region. With few exceptions, high temperatures all month long have been in the 70s and today, we'll find ourselves experiencing afternoon temperatures in the lower 70s with a light northwest breeze.

Clouds will slowly thicken this evening and tonight with a chance of light rain developing well after midnight as a weak disturbance arrives from the northwest.

We'll have a few light showers in the area to start our Thursday, but things will dry out and skies look to slowly clear off in the midday and afternoon hours tomorrow as that disturbance drifts away to the southeast. Look for sunshine with a light southeast breeze tomorrow and afternoon high temperatures will be in the upper 60s.

A slow moving storm system from the west will approach the region from the west by Friday and it looks like it will linger for a few days, keeping rain chances around while temperatures will continue to feel more like late September than late August.

We'll have a few light showers in the area with occasional sunshine Friday and high temperatures will be in the upper 60s to around 70 degrees.

Those light showers will be scattered around the area through the weekend, but it doesn't look like a total washout by any means. We'll have light showers and low 70s for highs Saturday with a little thunder possible on Sunday and high temperatures in the low to mid 70s.
