One More Mild Day Tomorrow
More Autumn-Like Temperatures to Finish the Week
Good evening… it was another pleasant day across the region. We saw hazy sunshine. The haze is caused by western wildfires. Had our sky been clearer, we could’ve have added a few degrees to our afternoon highs. We also saw rather breezy conditions as a south wind continued to bring mild air into the region. These southerly winds are ahead of an approaching cool front. While this front won’t bring any rain, it will bring our next round of Autumn-like weather.
As we head into tonight, look for a partly cloudy and mild night. Overnight lows will fall into the upper 50s to lower 60s in the north and the lower to middle 60s in the south. It will remain a bit breezy, with south winds at 10 to 15 mph. Occasional gusts could approach 20 to 25 mph.
We will sneak one more mild day in across the region tomorrow. Look for more hazy sunshine and highs in the lower 70s in the north and the middle and upper 70s in the south. A sharp cool front will quietly track through the region during the day. We’ll start to feel the effects of the front tomorrow afternoon as winds shift from the south to the north. Temperatures will then begin to drop during the evening. In fact, lows look to end up in the upper 30s to middle 40s by Thursday morning.
Thursday looks mostly sunny, but much cooler. Expect highs to only manage the upper 50s to middle 60s.
Looking ahead… the big story early on will be temperatures. We’ll see highs in the upper 50s to middle 60s both Friday and Saturday. Overnight lows will hold mainly in the 30s and 40s. In fact, we could see more patchy frost in those traditional cool spots in the east and north. Stay tuned. We could even see a few stray sprinkles Friday. However, they will be fighting some very dry air. As a result, I am expecting most areas to remain dry. Saturday looks dry for now, but we may need to add a sprinkle or two for that day, as well.
Winds turn to the south by Sunday. This will allow more seasonable air to return. We’ll see highs in the upper 60s to lower 70s Sunday, then middle and upper 70s for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Unfortunately, with the warm up will come a slight chance of shower and t-storms. At this time, the rain threat looks rather low.
Have a great night! -WKBT Cory Malles
