Low pressure and a frontal boundary is now to our south, but a trough extends from the low northwest and across our viewing area. This kept scattered showers going across the region last night and they continue this morning in southern parts of the viewing area.
Otherwise expect mostly cloudy skies this morning, then partly sunny conditions from north to south by afternoon. There's a small chance for some isolated t-showers in spots this afternoon with the heating of the day. Highs today in the mid-upper 70s.
Tonight will be dry and partly cloudy. With the partial clearing, light winds and a wet ground... patchy fog could develop late tonight into early Saturday morning. This could especially be the case in the river valleys.
We'll see a mix of sun and clouds Saturday. It will be a few degrees warmer with highs in the upper 70s to low 80s. I can't rule out an isolated shower or t-storm Saturday afternoon, mainly in southern parts of the viewing area, but most areas should remain dry.
Sunday looks mainly dry with more seasonable highs in the low-mid 80s, under partly to mostly sunny skies.
Looking Ahead... August looks to start on a fairly toasty note with highs next Monday through Friday in the middle 80s to near 90º. Wednesday looks like it could be the hottest day with highs in the low 90s. It will also be rather humid with dew points in the 65-70F range likely.
With the heat and humidity, there will be at least slight chances for periodic showers and t-storms each day through Friday morning. The best chance for rain looks to be Thursday.
Happy Friday and have a great weekend! -Bill Graul
