Quiet and Sunny Finish to the Week
Time to break out the jackets again?? It may not be a bad idea as you step outside this morning, as many in our northern counties approach the 40s. We'll warm very nicely by late morning, then we'll top the mid to upper 70s with sunshine, a light breeze, and low humidity. Great weather to get out and enjoy!
Friday starts similar, but finishes a good bit warmer than Thursday. You may notice a bit of haze in the afternoon sky as we top out in the upper 80s, thanks to a very quick ridge of high pressure setting up over the state. That'll be short lived as we see yet another upper level storm system roll through as early as Saturday afternoon. Scattered showers and storms will be a possibility after lunchtime Saturday, but we're still likely looking at our best chance of widespread rain and storms on Sunday.
Unfortunately, we can't rule out severe weather again this weekend, with high winds being the main threat. At the moment though, heavy rain may be more of an impact by the end of the weekend. Stay tuned!
