A cold front will pass through the area Friday night. With it, a risk of storms. Behind the front: showers may linger for a portion of Saturday but dry and pleasant air will arrive late Saturday and stay into Sunday and early next week!
FRIDAY NIGHT FORECAST: Expect variable clouds. Scattered, locally heavy thunderstorms will be possible. Main storm threats: downpours, poor-drainage flooding, lightning. A few storms may produce gusty winds and hail. Temperatures will hit the lower 70s for lows.
SATURDAY FORECAST: Expect variable clouds. A few lingering showers are possible, but northeast breezes will slowly-but-surely bring slightly lower humidity levels late in the day. Also expect highs mainly in the low to possibly mid 80s.
SATURDAY NIGHT AND SUNDAY FORECAST: Expect mostly clear skies Saturday night and mostly sunny skies for Sunday! Temperatures will fall to the 60s for Saturday night and then climb to the 80s for Sunday. Also expect light north or northeast breezes to continue. Enjoy!
A PEEK INTO NEXT WEEK: Expect continued sunny, dry and pleasant weather for Monday with lows in the 60s and highs in the 80s. 80s will continue for daily highs for most if not all of the rest of the week (near 90 Thursday?), and rain chances will only slowly climb through the period.
TROPICS: New tropical storm development is not anticipated in the Atlantic Basin (including the Atlantic Ocean, Gulf of Mexico, and Caribbean Sea) through at least Saturday. August has yet only produced one tropical storm in the Atlantic: Erin.
