First Alert Forecast: Dry, mostly sunny conditions to stick around through the weekend!
Unsettled weather returns by next week...
High pressure has taken control over our forecast! Although lingering clouds remain in portions of the area, our clearing trend will continue through the rest of our Thursday... Highs will be warmer than yesterday but still below average, topping out in the low-mid 70s. Temperatures will bounce back to into the upper 70s by Friday afternoon under mostly sunny skies.
An upper-level ridge of high pressure will then build into the region by this weekend as the surface high pressure pushes out to our east... This will allow for even warmer temperatures both Saturday and Sunday and highs will top out in the low-mid 80s. We’ll also notice winds shifting back out of the south by Sunday, which will usher muggier conditions back into the area from that point forward.
Eventually we’ll find ourselves stuck in an unsettled pattern that will keep periods of rain and storms in the forecast from the start of next week through the end of next week... Potentially even into the following weekend! Stay tuned for frequent updates as we get closer.
