Temperatures will continue to run around 10 degrees about the seasonal average through the weekend.

Tonight:
A Few Clouds, Mild
Lows: 50s to Mid 60s
Wind: Light
Thursday:
Partly Cloudy, Warm
Highs: Mid to Upper 80s
Wind: SE 4-8 m.p.h.
Friday:
Partly Sunny, Warm
Highs: Mid to Upper 80s
Wind: S 4-8 m.p.h.

The area of high pressure responsible for yet another long, string of beautiful but dry days is moving out. But it won’t move very far to our east. As a result, unseasonably warm air is being pushed northward along the western edge of the high pressure center.

Instead of seasonable highs in the lower 70s, highs in the middle to upper 80s will be widespread until a cold front arrives late Sunday or Monday. Humidity levels will slowly increase, as well making it feel like summer in early October. The cold front may hang around through the day on Monday and may even provide some extra rainfall. The bottom line is we need rain. And the cold front is our next best chance for measurable, beneficial rain.
