EVENING: Increasing clouds and warm. Temps in the 80s.

TONIGHT: Scattered clouds and warm, low 68.

FRIDAY: Sunny and hot. High 90.

Thursday’s high of 92 is the first of several 90 degree days to end the month. Clouds are increasing this evening which will keep us warmer overnight. Temperatures start in the upper 60s Friday morning

A front will move across the area Friday afternoon and I don’t really anticipated much if any rain from it. A stray shower is possible but most areas will stay dry with temperatures near 90 degrees.

Not much change for the weekend with hot afternoons and warm nights. Most days will peak near 90 through the weekend and into Monday and Tuesday of next week.

I expect this month to be one of the top 10 hottest Augusts on record and potentially one of the top 5 driest on record.
