EVENING: Becoming mostly cloudy, mild. Temps in the 70s.

TONIGHT: Cloudy and mild. Low 64.

FRIDAY: Cloudy with patchy drizzle. High 73.

An easterly breeze from the Atlantic Ocean is generating more clouds across the area. Clouds will continue to increase this evening and tonight with temperatures remaining in the 60s overnight.

Friday remains cloudy with patchy drizzle at times. Total rainfall for the day should remain less than 0.05″ for most. Afternoon temperatures climb near 70 degrees.

A cold front that will bring significantly cooler air arrives Friday night into Saturday. The best chance for showers now appear to be Friday overnight, which is good for any outdoor plans Saturday. I would still plan for a leftover shower or two early Saturday morning. Clearing skies and a gusty northwest breeze develops Saturday afternoon. Wind speeds of 10-20mph with gusts of 20-30mph Saturday afternoon will send cooler air into the area. Temperatures drop into the 40s Sunday morning and remain in the 50s for the afternoon. Our first true taste of fall weather is arriving.
