It is feeling very fall-like today all thanks to a cold front that moved through during the morning hours. We will see temperatures stay in the 60′s throughout the afternoon. If you’re planning on heading out later on this evening grab a jacket because temperature will quickly fall to the 50′s and eventually to the 40′s overnight. It will be a very chilly start to the weekend, but won’t stay cool for long. Highs on Saturday will be back in the 70′s and 80′s by Sunday. Plenty of sunshine is expected throughout our weekend.

The warming trend will carry into our next work and school week with highs each day expected in the 80′s. Slightly better chances for rain will move back into the forecast by the time we get to Tuesday and through the end of the 7-day period. Out in the Tropics, we are watching 2 areas of concern. One disturbance has a medium chance for development out in the Atlantic. An broad area of low pressure in the southwestern Caribbean has a low chance of development and could form into something by the mid portion of next week.
