Forecast on Repeat

For the rest of the work week, the forecast will be all the same thanks to high pressure sticking around. That means sunshine will continue to be plentiful and winds will remain calm. If you can, make plans to get outdoors!

Steadily, temperatures will start to upsurge as we approach the weekend. For today and tomorrow, the high will come close to the 70 degree mark, though temperatures won’t exceed this until Friday. On the other hand, lows will linger in the upper 40’s for each day.

As always, the abundance of sunshine and high temperatures brings about the concern for high UV indices. Below is a chart that shows the value for each remaining weekday. When outdoors, be sure to have sunblock (SPF 15+), protective clothing and accessories, and water at hand.

Slight Shower Chances Return This Weekend

This weekend, we won’t see much change with the exception for isolated shower chances starting Sunday morning. These will be spotty with light amounts of precipitation. If anything, this disturbance will only promote partly sunny conditions for the day.
