After a string of dry and beautiful weather days, rain returns tomorrow.

 

This Afternoon:
Partly to mostly sunny and warm
Highs: Upper 70s to near 80 degrees
Wind: S 5-10 mph
Tonight:
Partly cloudy and mild
Lows: Upper 50s to middle 60s
Wind: S 5 mph to calm
Saturday:
Highs: Upper 70s
Precipitation: 60% chance

The entire week has been absolutely delightful -- today, no exception. More sun and warm highs near 80 degrees. The dry weather pattern will end tomorrow, as a cold front slides through. Even though the timing may not be ideal with rain arriving on a weekend, we do need the rain since it's been relatively dry. Check out our newest blog on the rainfall deficit here. Tomorrow morning should start off dry with a bit of sun, but clouds will increase through the day and rain chances will increase, as well. The most likely chance for rain will be after noon, as the front pushes from west to east.

 

The front looks to slide through swiftly late Saturday night, so Sunday should turn out to be a pretty nice day. Sunshine and comfortable highs in the middle 70s. Sunday also marks the first day of fall with the autumnal equinox occurring at 4:44pm. High pressure early next week keeps skies sunny with seasonable temperatures.
