Cool and pleasant today, with light showers tonight

Posted: Updated:

Good Wednesday.  We are in for a nice respite from the warm weather, at least for a few days.  Today will be amazing all day with mostly sunny skies and a pleasant high of 72.  Clouds will build through the late afternoon as a front slides through.  We can even expect some light showers from about 5pm-9pm.  While we may get a few folks with about 1/4" of rain, most will get only a light trace.  The major impact with this front will be another shot of cool air moving in.  Overnight we will have lows dropping into the mid to upper 40s as the rains move out.  Thursday afternoon will be even cooler with a high of only 64.  The average high is 77 for this time of year.

Friday will start cool in the upper 40s.  In the afternoon we will be a bit warmer, but still pleasant at 74. 

Over the weekend we will see a major warming trend begin.  Saturday we will get to 85, and Sunday all the way to 88.  I don't expect any rain through the weekend. 

The summer-like warmth continues into next week with highs near 90 through at least Tuesday.  Humidity levels will also be climbing so it looks to be quite uncomfortable next week also.
