Temperatures will rise into the middle 80s this afternoon, thanks to southerly winds and plenty of sunshine. Clouds will move into the region for our Thursday night, possibly bringing a few light showers to the region toward daybreak Friday.

Friday will be warm and humid. Showers and thunderstorms will get cranked up during the afternoon and evening when some heavy rainfall will be possible. While severe weather is not expected to be widespread, some storms could produce gusty wind up to 55 mph. Rain will be pretty likely through early Saturday. That’s when a cool front will work through our area. This brings an end to the rain by noon Saturday with dry and cool conditions for the rest of the weekend.

High temperatures will only be in the middle 60s both Saturday and Sunday. Time to do some outdoor chores around the house before the weekends get too warm!

Have a great day my friend! -Meteorologist Eric Sorensen
