FORECAST DISCUSSION:
The very dry and warm pattern continues today. Even though a southerly breeze is transporting a little more moisture into the region it will still be unseasonably dry, so much in fact that if you’re building a fire this weekend for camping or whatever you should be extra careful in doesn’t spread. The high today will be in the mid-80s. With that extra moisture we will have a 10-20% chance of an isolated shower but most of that should be absorbed by the dry air with our drought-like conditions. Also there is a very slight chance of a shower tonight. Tonight’s low around 65.

This weekend will be among the hottest days of the month. Both days will be partly cloudy and will heat up to near 90.  

Both days will be dry but there is a chance of showers after midnight Sunday. Fall officially arrives at 3:50 a.m. early Monday morning. With it cooler more fall-like air arrives. High temps Monday and Tuesday will be near 80, still above normal by more than 5 degrees but cooler than it ha been. Next week will still be dry but temperatures will stay more in line with 80 instead of 90.

Have a Great Weekend! Try to Stay Cool!
