First Alert Forecast: Gloomy now, warm for the weekend!
Beta's Remnant Circulation Begins to Move Away Through Thursday (Source: WLBT)

As the remnants of Beta continue to drift out of the region, thick cloud cover and misty conditions linger over the area! This has made for a gloomy day and temperatures dropped from the mid 70s this morning, to the upper 60s this afternoon. We’ll be dropping into the low-mid 60s overnight and mist, patchy fog could impact parts of the area by the Friday morning commute. We’ll see the clouds hang on through the day tomorrow, but temperatures should recover into the upper 70s by the afternoon hours.

Kinda feeling soup or chili for dinner... It's that kind of day ☁️

Working our way into the weekend, temperatures (and dew points) will continue to climb and will end up in the mid 80s both Saturday and Sunday afternoons. Although a disturbance will be moving overhead, there’s only enough moisture associated with it to bring isolated shower chances to the state by Sunday.

BIG changes are on the way for next week! We’ll have two cold fronts move through the region, one on Monday & the next by the Thursday time frame. Scattered showers and storms (maybe a few gusty storms) will be possible Monday, but exact timing is still yet to be determined. Behind that front, cooler and less humid conditions will move in. The second cold front won’t bring rain, but just another push of cooler and drier air for the start of October! We could see morning lows in the 50s and afternoon highs in the 70s for several days in a row! Stay tuned for frequent forecast updates.
