First Alert Forecast: cool & comfortable Tuesday
Feeling more like Autumn Tuesday; a warming trend takes place through mid-late week ahead of another front by the weekend. (Source: WLBT)

A pesky, low deck of clouds has kept temperatures in the 60s all morning long, but clearing skies have lead to a quick warm-up this afternoon! We’ll be topping out around 80° today, with dry conditions in the forecast for any afternoon and evening plans.

We’ll begin another warming trend into the middle and end of the work week, taking our afternoon highs back into the mid-upper 80s Wednesday through Friday. Outside of a stray shower or thunderstorm on Thursday, we should be dry until Friday afternoon/evening. This will be as another cold front swings through the state, bringing scattered showers and thunderstorms and MUCH cooler temperatures with it!

Friday evening and Saturday morning plans will see the best chance for showers and storms as this front passes through. Expect a dramatic drop in temperatures Saturday and Sunday, especially in comparison to our previous weekend where both days reached 90 degrees! We’ll be waking up in the 40s/50s each morning, and only topping out in the 60s/70s each afternoon.

We’ll see more seasonable conditions by the start of next week, in addition to the chance for more showers and thunderstorms as we wrap up the 7-day forecast period. Stay tuned for updates and enjoy the fall temperatures!
