Gusty south winds and warm September sunshine will again be the ingredients that lead to a pleasant summer-like day across the region.
Expect mostly sunny skies through the day with those south winds working to usher in a warm, slightly more humid air mass from the southern Plains and afternoon high temperatures will be in the mid and upper 80s. That’s about 12 to 15 degrees above the seasonal average. Humidity will also be more noticeable by the tail end of the day as dew point temperatures will reach the lower 70s.
A storm system from the west will move into the region later tonight and for Wednesday, bringing thicker clouds and some rain chances to the area. We’ll have showers and thunderstorms early Wednesday with another round possible in the afternoon and evening. Even with grayer skies, temperatures will still manage to climb into the lower 80s as gusty south winds continue to pull in summer-like warmth.
Showers and thunderstorms will hang around into Thursday morning with high temperatures near 80 degrees. A little sunshine may break through later in the day as we get a break from rain chances for a little while..
Another storm system will bring more rain chances with some thunder developing during the day Friday and lingering into early Saturday as a stronger cold front slides through the area.
Cooler, drier air will blow in for Saturday with skies clear a bit in the afternoon. High temperatures Saturday will be in the mid-70s with lower 70s and gusty sunshine expected for Sunday.
