Definitely not the pretty start to the end of the work week we were all hoping for! It was a damp and cloudy start to our Friday. Several areas woke up to light to moderate shower activity with temperatures in the mid to upper 60s. Even though we are done with the majority of the rainfall, keep the umbrellas handy because of the lingering scattered showers this afternoon.
Highs will top out in the low to mid 70s by the time we get to the early afternoon. We'll take a dive this afternoon and here’s why... the cold front that we've been tracking off to our northwest is sweeping through right now. As is passes off to the east, we’ll see a big change in our wind flow. Expect those southerly winds to turn out of the north and definitely on the strong side. Most of the rain will taper off, but our temperatures will be cooling down into the mid 60s by the late afternoon hours under partly cloudy skies.
Conditions won’t change much tonight other than the drastic dip in temperatures in the later hours. Early morning lows Saturday are expected to fall as low as the upper 40s and lower 50s. The cool weather doesn't stop there though - peak temperatures will only reach the mid 60s as we kick off our holiday weekend! Sunday and Monday look to be more pleasant overall; expect afternoon highs in the 70s and 80s under mostly sunny skies.
