Warm conditions continue to build into the region
A cold front will bring rain and cooler weather this weekend
- Well above average warmth continues this week
- Areas of fog overnight
- Cold front brings showers Saturday; much cooler Sunday
Similar to last night, skies will clear some allowing for mountain valley fog and patchy fog elsewhere. Drive careful overnight into Thursday morning. Lows will fall into the 50s in most spots.
THURSDAY & FRIDAY
High pressure builds from the Gulf of Mexico and stretches northward delivering a very quiet weather setup through Friday. This leads to additional sunshine and much warmer temperatures which could even be record setting Thursday and Friday as highs climb to the low/mid 80s.
WEEKEND COLD FRONT
A strong cold front has been inching its way across the country this week and will finally make it into the region Saturday. Expect more clouds but only scattered shower coverage mostly in the morning to early afternoon. This will hold high temperatures down into the mid 70s.
By Sunday, cooler and drier air quickly blows into the region with a stiff northwest breeze. Afternoon highs will only reach the upper 50s in the mountains with low and mid 60s elsewhere. Mostly clear skies will also allow for big temperature drops at night. Lows bottom out in the mid 40s.
This cool, dry pattern will stick around into next week.
