Decent Weekend on the Way

A nice start to yesterday was marred by increasing cloud cover and shower chances as day turned to evening. Luckily, we’ll expect the reverse today as we have a decent weekend on the way.

Sun Returns Saturday

Welcome to the weekend.

And things will be breezy. We’ll be on the backside of the storm system that gave us a gentle soaking last night and that means we’ll be drying out…but also a bit on the breezy side.

We’re in between a couple of boundaries. The cold front that gave us the rain last night and another boundary that will give us a reinforcing shot of cold air. Simply put, a pretty nice day with clouds decreasing allowing us to reach a high near 65º. The trade-off will be stiff breezes on the order of 10-15 MPH.

The other trade-off will be the clear skies and that secondary boundary moving through, dragging overnight lows to around 33-34º. Things would get quite frosty if not for the breeze, still a-blowin’ at around 10 MPH.

Chillier Sunday

Maybe grab the heavy coats?

We’ll start the day in the mid-30s and only improve to around 50º or so for a high. Though, we have two things working for us: sunshine and calmer winds. Even then, you’ll want to keep warm if you’re headed out. We’re back in the mid-30s again for a low tomorrow night with distinct frost potential.

Monday is Much the Same

A similar day to Sunday on tap to begin the week, but with a bit more sunshine and warmth.

Temperatures look to top out closer to 60º under those sunny skies in the afternoon. A pretty nice afternoon…for a Monday. Lows on Monday night fall to around 40º. Might be chilly at times, but I’m still quite the fan of fall.

That just about does it for me! Follow our live weather feed @wxornotbg for the latest forecast and updates. Have a terrific Saturday!
