We’re finally getting a break from thunder and heavy rainfall today, but we’ll still have to deal with a less than perfect weather picture as we round out the workweek with gusty winds and some spots of drizzle.
The cold front associated with the storm system that sparked widespread heavy rainfall and severe weather through much of Thursday has moved to our east and in its wake, cooler, drier air is blowing into the region as winds are expected to become rather gusty. We’ll have to deal with sprinkles and spots of drizzle with occasional sunshine becoming more prevalent later in the afternoon. Winds will occasionally reach 30 miles per hour until the late afternoon as well, adding to the cooler, more fall-like feel of the day as afternoon high temperature will only be in the mid-60s, almost ten degrees cooler than the seasonal average.
Winds will subside late in the day and only a slight breeze will be felt during Friday night football. Temperatures during the evening will fall into the upper 50s to lower 60s with clearing skies and overnight lows will be in the lower 50s.
Warmer air will blow right back into the region on Saturday as another storm system approaches from the west. Expect bright sunshine through much of the day with a chance of late afternoon and evening scattered showers and thunderstorms. There’s a chance that a few of those storms may become strong to severe. Large hail and strong wind gusts will be possible in some of the stronger storms later tomorrow. High temperatures will be in the mid-70s with gusty south winds that will reach 25 miles per hour st time.s
Sunday is looking bright and pleasant as high pressure works its way into the region, providing us with dry, quiet weather. High temperatures will be in the upper 70s with a much lighter northwest breeze.
We’ll have sunshine and lower 80s for high temperature next Monday and Tuesday before another cold front possibly sparks some thunderstorms late Wednesday into Thursday of next week.
