Clouds invaded the area from the west Friday afternoon. This is actually good news as this is a sign that warmer air is on the way. Look for clouds to hang around through Friday night. This cloudiness will actually help keep temperatures on the mild side Friday night as lows only fall into the middle 30s to lower 40s.

Looking Ahead... The weekend continues to look dry and warmer with highs in the low-mid 60s. It will be a bit breezy on Sunday.

A cool front will slide southeast across the region late Sunday, cooling highs back into the mid-upper 50s for Monday. However, it will remain dry.

A system will bring a good chance of rain next Tuesday and Wednesday, perhaps a few isolated t-storms as well. Rainfall totals could climb into the 1.00"-2.00" range in many areas. The clouds and rain will keep highs in the mid 50s.

Drier weather returns by Thursday and Friday. Temps will remain seasonal Thursday through Saturday with highs in the upper 50s to near 60º.

Happy Friday and have a great weekend! -Bill Graul
