Nearing Record Warm Friday Afternoon

Forecast

Showers on tap for Saturday, breezy weekend ahead...

THIS AFTERNOON/EVENING: Partly Cloudy, Warm. Hi 77.

TONIGHT: Partly Cloudy, Mild. Lo 60.

FRIDAY: Partly Cloudy, Warm, Evening Shower. Hi 80.

Thick morning fog started the day, while sunshine and warmth ended up winning overall! High temperatures peaked in the upper 70s with even a few 80° readings reported. Today did not challenge any records, but the afternoon temperatures were easily 10-15° above normal. This evening also stays mild with readings safely in the low to mid-70s. Overall lows tonight should be in the upper 50s to low 60s with dry conditions.

By tomorrow, we should break 80°, likely falling just short of a record high (84° set in 1897). A light shower or two can develop late in the day, but it shouldn’t be anything to ruin Friday night football. It stays mild Friday night with lows in the upper 60s! Again the daylight hours should be dry.

The best chance for rain over the next seven days will come Saturday afternoon with a pretty potent cold front. Some gusty winds and thunder will be possible as a narrow line of showers crosses through the region between 12-6pm. Behind the front, it will turn much cooler and stay breezy for Sunday. Highs will be in the mid-60s! Temperatures will remain seasonable through early next week with highs in the upper 60s and overnight lows around 50°. A temporary pattern change is finally on the way, but temperatures will be going up again by the middle of next week. We’ll keep you posted on the trends!
