The high pressure center that has provided several mild, dry days is moving off shore. Winds will increase out of the south tomorrow on the back side of the high and just ahead of an approaching cold front. Skies will be partly cloudy and it will be warmer will highs reaching the middle 80s. BUT by late afternoon, keep your eyes on the skies. There is a 50% chance for showers and isolated thunderstorms when the front gets closer to the area. Besides the heavy downpours, some of the storms could be quite heavy with very strong wind gusts. There is also a slight chance that a couple storms could become severe. The time-frame of concern is between 4 and 10 pm. On Sunday, the next area of high pressure will build into the region. This system is Canadian in origin. Therefore, much cooler and drier air will arrive for Sunday, Monday and Tuesday.

Summer officially ends and fall officially begins at 10:49 tomorrow morning. Happy Autumn!
