It was another nice and warm day for most of us today although a cold front kept our northeastern most counties much cooler than the rest of us. Below is a look at some of our morning lows and afternoon highs from today.


Clouds will increase tonight leading to slightly milder temperatures tomorrow morning although we will still be cold starting off in the mid 30s. The front that is currently positioned across our northeastern counties will make another push to the southwest and clear the region tomorrow leading to cooler temperatures although it still looks like we will warm to above the average high of 55°.

Clouds will continue to increase on Saturday as moisture pools across the region leading to a slight chance for some storms. Several models show some rain and storms forming early Saturday afternoon while others still keep any activity to late Saturday night into early Sunday morning. Either way it looks like any storms we see will be weak and rainfall amounts will be meager at best. Below is a graphic produced by the Hydrometeorological Prediction Center showing that total rainfall over the weekend will be less than a tenth of an inch area wide.

Clouds will quickly clear on Sunday and we will hold mostly sunny conditions into the middle of next week. It looks like we will see breezy to windy conditions during the first half of next week but models still differ quite a bit on the overall wind setup so that could still change as we get closer.

Our next cold front will then move through during the middle of next week cooling us down to below average temperatures to end out the week. It does not look like we will see any precipitation with that system.

I hope you had a great day! Join us tonight on the News at Nine for the latest News, Weather and Sports. Matt will have the next forecast update tomorrow morning.
