Our temperatures may be running a little cool for mid June standards, but we’re enjoying bright, quiet, pleasant sunshine across the region under high pressure that is settling in from Canada. After a crisp and unseasonably cool morning, temperatures will warm quickly through the day, reaching the mid 60s by lunchtime, then lower 70s by the late afternoon with tons of sunshine and just a light northwest breeze.
Warmer air will begin to work its way into the region late tonight as a storm system approaches from the northwest, so temperatures will actually bottom out in the lower 50s around midnight before climbing late. A few showers and rumbles of thunder will be possible late in the night as well.
A few showers will be possible early Friday with sunshine and gusty southwest winds through the rest of the day helping warm temperatures into the mid and upper 70s. Wind gusts of 30 to 35 miles per hour are expected tomorrow. A few more isolated showers and thunderstorms may develop late in the evening hours.
The weekend is looking mostly decent, but there will be some rain chances in the area that may impact your outdoor plans. Look for a few morning showers Saturday, then we’ll have occasional sunshine through the afternoon with a few more showers and thunderstorms possible in the afternoon into the evening and high temperatures will be in the upper 70s with a south breeze.
Father’s Day Sunday is looking mostly pleasant, but there may be a few stray showers in the area through lunchtime with sunnier skies in the afternoon and mild high temperatures in the lower 70s. Winds will be generally light, coming in from the north.
We’ll start next week with mild sunshine through Monday and Tuesday with seasonable warmth later in the week and occasional rounds of showers and thunderstorms for parts of each day between Wednesday and Friday.
