Seasonable Today, 90s Tomorrow
We started off in the chilly 50s this morning and are still about 10-15 degrees cooler than yesterday but its feeling pretty comfortable out there. We will stay seasonable today with highs in the low 80s with plenty of sunshine and just some high clouds passing by. Enjoy the "cooler" temperatures today because tomorrow for your Friday we are back to the 90s with a bit of a breeze.
Changes are in store for this weekend: Saturday features a windy, muggy start, with a cold front that will carry our main chance of rain. Timing has consistently looked to be in the Saturday evening / night time frame, with much cooler conditions and clearing behind the front that will likely keep us dry for Sunday. Rain chances for the afternoon will largely depend on how much sunshine we get.
At the moment, we're going with about a 40% chance of afternoon thunderstorms. Storms that form ahead of the front, as well as storms moving with the front Saturday evening, have the potential of being severe with damaging winds and large hail as the primary threats. You'll want to monitor the weather and keep tuned to your News3 app if you'll be outdoors, especially Saturday afternoon. The weekend wraps up with highs in the low 70s Sunday.
