EVENING: Clear and mild. Temps drop into the 70s.

TONIGHT: Clear and cool. Low 56.

FRIDAY: Sunny and warm. High 86.

Very dry conditions and full sunshine allowed temperatures to quickly climb into the upper 80s Thursday afternoon. As the dry air remains in place tonight, our temperatures will drop quickly with many areas starting Friday morning in the 50s!

Lots of sun and low humidity will send our temperatures into the upper 80s Friday afternoon. We stay dry heading into the holiday weekend with an increase in heat and humidity for Saturday. Both Saturday and Sunday have a chance of hitting 90 degrees. A front will get closer to the area on Sunday with a stray storm toward evening. This front will produce plenty of clouds for Labor Day Monday, and may also bring some showers to the area for a change.
