Sunshine Sticks With Us into the Weekend

After a gorgeous Thursday, we turn back the clock to summer quite soon, but not before another dry front works it’s way through the area. That’ll give us a comfortable Saturday as sunshine sticks with us into the weekend.

Warming Up on Friday

Wednesday’s weak cold front that gave us the comfortable weather yesterday has shifted on out and we’ll be on the warm-up once again as sunshine once again dominates the forecast.

Temperatures will hover right around 90º or so again, with humidity values steadily going up into the evening hours in advance of a weak front.

Still won’t be a bad evening for heading out to high school football, with temperatures falling through the 70s as we head toward a low near 65º. It’s not likely, but we can’t rule out a sprinkle as the front moves through, otherwise we stay mostly clear.

Lookin’ Good for Saturday

We’ll be back in northwesterly flow for Saturday and that means comfortable temperatures and humidity levels return as we start the weekend.

High temperatures look to top out around 85º once more as a comfortable afternoon is once again upon us.

Mostly sunny skies will stay mostly clear heading into the evening and overnight hours as we head for another pleasantly cool (for early September) night, with a low falling to near 60º.

Warmup Begins Sunday

Cold front passes by, high pressure heads east as we close out the weekend by warming up while staying, you guessed it, mostly sunny.

Humidity stays comfortable but we start warming up to about 88º or so for tomorrow afternoon’s high…and that’s just a sign of things to come.

Toasty Into Next Week

Summer’s back as we start the new week as another dome of high pressure moves in and with it comes hot temperatures and sticky conditions.

Humidity levels go up as temperatures soar into the 90s, with mid 90s possible by next week as nary a rain chance pays us a visit. Mostly sunny skies continue as you look to the calendar in puzzlement thinking “wait, it’s September?”
