Another pleasant summer day around here but for those who long for a "Dark and Stormy Night", you may get your wish soon...
This evening will remain pleasant although clouds will increase a bit as a weak system approaches. We could even see a few sprinkles or light showers. Lows will be in the low 50s.
Another front moves in later Thursday for a cloudy day with light rain developing later in the day. Highs will stay in the mid 60s.
Summer's last full day is now looking anything but summer-like, as later Friday afternoon into Friday night could end up a bit stormy. A potent low pressure system is set to swirl into the region, although forecast models still differ on the track and strength of the low. All say we'll see steady rains Friday afternoon into the night, but depending on what the low does, could be a bit windy as well. Highs will stay in the mid 60s.
Rain turns to showers Saturday morning and then showers will decrease in the afternoon with temperatures in the mid-upper 60s.
We'll dry out for Sunday -- maybe a rogue morning shower but let's just call it partly sunny and pleasant with highs around 65.
Then as autumn get the feel for its first work week, summer barges down the door and says: "Hey! Not so fast!" Long range models are trending sunnier and warmer for next week with highs getting into the 70s by Tuesday and then maybe the mid-upper 70s by the end of next week. This is probably our famed "parting shot" where summer makes one last gasp!
