WEATHER:

The string of nice weather days looks to continue for our Wednesday. After a comfortably cool morning start, afternoon highs will settle right where they should be in the low 80°s under mostly sunny skies. Clouds will start to build as we move through the evening, but the area will remain dry. That won't be the case before sunrise Thursday morning. Predawn rain showers are likely as our next cold front moves through. We might get a rumble or two of thunder, but severe weather won't be an issue. Most will receive less than half an inch of rain. Some wet slick streets will occur for the Thursday morning drive, so use some caution on the roads tomorrow morning. The rain exits shortly after sunrise leaving behind a very nice Thursday afternoon. Afternoon temperatures will be back in the low to mid 70°s. Yet another front is expected to move through the area late Friday. A few showers might get squeezed out Friday afternoon and evening. The vast majority will remain dry though. Friday's front will create a picture perfect weekend forecast. Temperatures will remain below normal both Saturday and Sunday. A warming trend will occur by the start of next week. A few showers return to the forecast by the middle of next week.
