Skies try to clear today, setting up for a very warm weekend
Clouds have been stubborn to clear early this afternoon, but drier upper level air moving in from the north may allow us to break the clouds for a bit. For those that tap into a few more peeks of sunshine (especially north and west), daytime highs will look to reach for the upper 80s. For those south and east, temperatures may only top off in the low-to-mid 80s depending on how quickly the cloud cover on the back side of Nicholas can break up through the day. A healthy northeasterly breeze will stick with us Wednesday -- 10-15 mph sustained, gusting upwards of 20 mph+ at times.
Nicholas continues to swirl and weaken, but may fling enough moisture to pop up a couple showers in the afternoon through the end of the week. Other than that, no measurable rain is expected through at least Friday. A south wind returns this weekend, and we may manage a good downpour or two late in the afternoon. The more substantial chance for rain looks to come in the form of a cold front (yes, as of right now, it looks to reach us) by middle to late next week.
Wednesday: Mostly cloudy with a 20% chance for isolated rain and storms. High: 89. Wind: NE 10-15 mph, gusting 20 mph+.
Wednesday Night: Partly cloudy. Low: 72. Wind: N 5-10 mph.
Thursday: Partly cloudy with a 20% chance for isolated rain and storms. High: 91. Wind: ENE 5-15 mph.
Thursday Night: Mostly cloudy. Low: 73. Wind: SE 10-15 mph.
