We are off to another nice start to the day for our Friday.  Temperatures were cool again for some of us this morning, but we are mostly in the mid to upper 60s across the area now.  Many of us are seeing beautiful blue skies, but that cloud cover will build more as we head into the afternoon hours.  The storms off to our northwest may affect our area around dinnertime, but the dry air we have in place now may work to break some of the earlier rains up.  Highs today will reach into the low 80s.


The best chance of storms looks to come our way in the overnight hours.  Dewpoints will be working their way back up, while lows will dip down into the upper 60s.

This Weekend:

We are in the slight risk area by the Storm Prediction Center for severe thunderstorms on Saturday.  While the main line of storms looks to stay towards our North for the afternoon, storms that do dip further south may bring heavy rains, strong winds and possibly hail.  Your weekend will be hot and muggy, with high humidity and temperatures in the mid to upper 80s.

Long Range:

By the middle of next week, we look to be on the other side of a cold front that will bring unusually cool temperatures to our area for this time of year.  Highs for Wednesday through Friday in particular look to be in the mid-70s.  Lots of sunshine and relatively low humidity will make it feel nice and comfortable out during the day, but cool at night.
