REST OF TODAY

A few showers will hover throughout the evening with some isolated showers possible overnight, but most will be dry with mostly clear skies. Temperatures tonight will be mild in the 60s.

TUESDAY & WEDNESDAY

Stray showers are possible for early Tuesday as the front passes by, but high pressure moves in quickly drying us out. An upper level ridge is our next big weather maker. We will be mostly dry, but temperatures will soar for the last day of summer (Wednesday). Right now looks like most of us will hit the mid-upper 80s and low 90s for the middle of our week!

THURSDAY & FRIDAY

A second cold front will impact the area on Thursday. While a stray shower or two are possible, most communities will stay dry. Temperatures and humidity levels plummet behind the front thanks to a northwest breeze. Expect highs in the upper 70s and low 80s on Thursday, and upper 60s and low 70s on Friday. Dew points will be very refreshing in the 40s! Definitely will feel like fall to close out the week!
