Highs will only reach the upper 60s to lower 70s this afternoon as clouds and a few showers linger around the area! The front that has been stalled out over the region since Mother’s Day is finally to our south and high pressure to our north will slowly allow for improving conditions here at home.

We’ll notice nicer weather as early as tomorrow as sunshine finally makes a return to the forecast. Highs will reach the low-mid 70s Thursday afternoon, but with full on sunshine Friday, we’ll be back to the upper 70s with dry conditions to wrap up the work week!

A ridge of high pressure will also build in overhead into the weekend, and this will allow for continued dry weather and even warmer temperatures... Highs will reach the low 80s Saturday afternoon and top out in the mid 80s by Sunday. As winds shift back out of the south, moisture will eventually move back into the region, setting us up for our next rain & t’storm chances by the start of next week. Stay tuned for updates!
