Today – Isolated Showers – High 89° / Tonight – Partly Cloudy – Low 58°

Patchy fog is out there this morning, so be careful during the early morning commute. Fog can be seen via the White Squirrel weather NestCam.

The main story of today will be the passage of a fairly strong cold front. Convergence along the cold front is expected to be weak, resulting in only isolated showers developing during the afternoon and evening hours.

It will take a little time for temperatures to respond to the frontal passage, thus another hot day is on tap. Highs should top out just shy of 90° under partly cloudy skies for the most part.


Partly cloudy skies with some gusty winds will move in overnight. Wind won’t be a big issue, just a few gusts around 15 mph are possible. Lows will drop to around 58°.

Thursday – Mostly Sunny – High 75° / Thurs Night – Mostly Clear – Low 52°

Much nicer weather is in store for Thursday. High pressure should begin to spread into the region from the west, leading to dry conditions once again. Expect mostly sunny skies with a high around 75°. Zero complaining allowed. If you have a complaint, you can take it…


Mostly clear skies should remain in place on Thursday night, leading to low temperatures around 52°.

Friday – Mostly Sunny – High 73° / Fri Night – Mostly Clear – Low 52°

A copy and paste forecast is in store for Friday, the only difference being that high pressure will be closer to the region. Mostly sunny skies with highs topping out around 73°.
