TODAY: It'll be a partly to mostly cloudy day. This morning we've got lower clouds building in from the southeast. These should diminish through the morning, but mid- and upper-level clouds will continue to stream in from the west. This morning the temp is in the 40s, high this afternoon near 65. The wind will kick up some from the SE to about 20mph through the afternoon. Sunset 8:26 p.m.

NEXT FEW DAYS: Clouds will diminish through tonight, leading to a mostly sunny and warmer day tomorrow...high near 80. Both the mornings and afternoons will be warmer this weekend into next week. A front will knock the high down a few degrees Saturday, before warming day by day through next week.

It'll get more humid, especially by Sunday into next week. The problem is we don't have strong lift arriving. A dry line may develop each afternoon, so a few isolated storms will be possible. One model shows this setup, while another model keeps it dry. At this point the chance for rain just doesn't look good, but it's definitely something we'll keep an eye on in the coming days.

Another front should cool it down by the middle of next week. It does not look nearly as strong as the fronts we've seen over the past month.

 
 
 


Have a great day. Rudy will have a full update to the forecast later this afternoon.

Less hot next few days, rain possible this weekend
It's still going to be well above the average, but not record heat tomorrow and next few days. There is a slim chance for a few storms Tuesday, but a better rain setup appears headed this way for the weekend.
