Plan for another gorgeous evening with generally clear skies and comfortable temperatures. Lows tonight won’t be quite as cool as clouds begin to move back in overnight, trapping in that heat near the surface. Lows slip to the low-mid 60s.

WEDNESDAY

Sunshine returns in full force Tuesday as an area of high pressure builds in. We’ll see mostly sunny conditions throughout the day with highs in the mid 80s. We turn slightly warmer and more humid Wednesday ahead of a mid-week cold front. The front officially arrives late Wednesday evening triggering a few overnight showers and stray storms.

Showers and Storms are most likely Wednesday afternoon and evening across the Southside as well...

THURSDAY & FRIDAY

As the front slows down over the area, we may keep a few clouds and stray shower around early Thursday morning. Skies will quickly turn sunny behind the front as drier air returns under high pressure. This will lead to clearing skies through Friday. Our high temperatures remain in the low to mid 80s through the first part of the weekend. Overnight lows will slip to the upper 50s Friday and Saturday mornings.

Increasing sunshine Thursday as a front pushes south of the area.
