We have filtered sunshine today as high clouds are moving through the area. High pressure is holding fast over the region and will keep us dry until the start of Friday as it finally shifts east and is replaced by a fast moving low pressure system.

Anticipate passing, scattered showers Friday morning into the early evening hours, with a few rumbles of thunder possible. Temperatures will still be able to reach the upper 60s tomorrow afternoon and we will dry out in time for the weekend!

Clouds will linger behind this system Saturday and Sunday, but temperatures are expected to vary day to day. Expect highs in the low 60s Saturday afternoon, but upper 60s by Sunday. We’ll be even warmer kicking off the upcoming work week, topping out in the low-mid 70s before another, stronger system rolls through. This will bring us a better chance for showers and storms Monday into Tuesday. A 20° cooldown is likely to follow.
