We've made it to Friday, folks. While we are starting out dry and cool, there is going to be a shift in the weather pattern heading into the afternoon. However, for the first part of the day temperatures are starting out of the mild side. Most of our communities are being welcomed by cloud cover and temperatures in the low to mid 30s.
Scattered showers will move through the Tri-State this afternoon into the evening. It will cover the southern half of the Tri-State and gradually cover the northern half tonight. This system is part of a warm front marching northward from the Gulf of Mexico. It won't only bring us rain chances, but warmer temperatures heading into Saturday.
Most of the rain should be out of the area by daybreak tomorrow. Temperatures will be in the low to mid 40s with foggy conditions. We'll dry out with partly sunny skies Saturday afternoon with highs in the low 60s - a good time to enjoy the outdoors! Unfortunately, heavier rain bands will push through as part of another system Saturday night into Sunday. It will be a soaking end to our weekend with some areas receiving up to 2" of rain.
