Clouds finally break Wednesday, summer-like end to the week

Forecast

Cooler air looms for the end of the weekend...

THIS EVENING: Mostly Cloudy. Temperatures Holding Steady In The Mid-60s. Winds: Light.

OVERNIGHT: Mostly Cloudy, Patchy Fog. Lo 62. Winds: Light.

WEDNESDAY: AM Clouds, Some Sun, Warm. Hi 77. Winds: Light.

It was our eighth straight day with overcast skies! Clouds will remain stubborn tonight as temperatures remain steady in the mid-60s. Depending on if skies can clear out at all overnight, patchy areas of dense fog can develop first thing Wednesday morning.

By tomorrow, this pattern of persistent east flow finally breaks as high pressure to our north moves out. This will drive our flow more out of the south and west, finally helping to bring us drier air aloft. This will also allow temperatures to really take off with upper 70s expected on Wednesday and highs near 80° by Thursday. And if that isn’t warm enough for you, highs should make it to near-record levels on Friday. Low 80s appear likely! Some showers could develop by Friday evening, but this isn’t a given yet.

The first half of the weekend will remain very warm as we await the next front to move on through. This will likely won’t happen until the afternoon, but when it does, a line of showers and possibly even a thunderstorm will cross. In behind the front, it will turn much cooler and also breezy for Sunday. Temperatures will remain seasonable through early next week with highs in the mid-60s but with overnight lows around 50. A temporary pattern change is finally on the way, but temperatures will be going up again by mid next week.
