Changes in our weather pattern are in the works however we still have a good chance of showers and storms once again today.

Thursday: Variable Cloudiness; Scattered Showers & Storms

Highs: Mid 70s | Wind: WSW 5-10

Overnight: Few More Showers & Storms; Mostly Cloudy; Patchy Fog Late

Lows: 50s | Wind: W 5

Friday: Partly Sunny; Couple T-Showers; Mainly PM

Highs: Mid - Upper 70s | Wind: NW 5-10

The upper level low that has been drifting overhead this week will begin its slow departure today. Variable cloudiness will allow for some break for sunshine however as temperatures warm this afternoon into the mid 70s conditions will become more unstable with scattered showers and storms once again popping up across the region.

The soil remains saturated and area streams, creeks, and rivers are elevated so the threat of flash flooding is be a primary concern. During the overnight thunderstorms will fade away however a few lingering showers will still be possible. Again tonight low level moisture and light winds could lead to the development of patchy fog that may impact your Friday morning drive.

More sunshine will be in the mix Friday as the low continues to drift east and temperatures warm into the mid to upper 70s. While the chance of rain will drop to around 30% Friday a few more showers and storms may develop mainly during the afternoon during peak heating.

Saturday high pressure will build into place allowing for partly cloudy but dry conditions with afternoon highs around 80 degrees. Sunday will also feature a good deal of sunshine and warmth but we may see a couple thunderstorms or showers pop in the afternoon and evening.
