The next few days will likely be sunny and spectacular, with highs in the upper 70s.

Tonight: Mostly Clear, Cooler & Less Humid

Lows: 48-58 | Wind: N 8-12 m.p.h.

Thursday: Mostly Sunny & Comfortable

Highs: Mid 70s | Wind: NNE 5-10 m.p.h.

Friday: Sunny & Pleasant

Highs: Upper 70s | Wind: E 5-10 m.p.h.

Northwesterly winds have been delivering warmer and drier air to our area this afternoon. The more unstable, tropical air mass we were under yesterday, has moved well south of the region. Therefore, thunderstorm activity will remain well south also. However, a cold front will cross the region this evening and there is a small chance we could see an isolated shower or thundershower pop up. If anything does develop it will be localized and very brief.

Cooler and breezy air will move in behind the front. As high pressure strengthens across the region for the next several days, the weather will range between beautiful and spectacular.

Tomorrow will be sunny and a bit breezy with comfortable humidity levels. Ditto for Friday without the breeze. Over the weekend, we will continue to see partly to mostly sunny skies with slightly warmer afternoon temperatures. The next chance of rain will be on Tuesday of next week.
