First Alert Forecast: September heat through Friday; cooler autumn air by weekend
Fall-like weather is on the way, but we still have to get past the warm and muggy conditions for today and Friday! Temperatures will rise back to the middle and upper 80s tis afternoon with it feeling more like 90 degrees with the humidity factored in. There is a slight chance for a stray shower this afternoon or evening, but most of us will likely remain dry. Muggy and mild conditions will continue overnight with temperatures falling to the lower 70s into Friday morning.
Tomorrow will be the last day of the warm and humid weather before cooler air arrives. Expect high temperatures well-above average in the mid and upper 80s. A strong cold front is expected to push into the area by the evening hours and will likely bring a line of showers along with it. A few thunderstorms could be possible, but severe weather is not anticipated at this time. By the time we wake up Saturday morning, the rain and the front should be out of our area.
A much cooler and drier air mass will begin to settle in across the area on Saturday. Highs Saturday afternoon only look to make it to the lower and middle 70s with plenty of sunshine. It will likely be breezy out on the wake of the front. Saturday night into Sunday morning will get pretty chilly with overnight lows well in the 40s! We will see these conditions stick round all weekend long and into the week ahead. Temperature and humidity look to come up a bit by the middle of next week, but another front could move in by Thursday to help reinforce the cooler air.
