Forecast Snapshot:

High pressure remains in control of our weather. A weak cool front will slide south through the area Thursday and possibly touch off a few showers or storms in the mid to late afternoon. The chance of much needed precipitation remains relatively low through the 7 day forecast. Another cold front may arrive next Tuesday and bring some rain or storms, but much can change up to that point. Daytime highs will be 10-15 degrees above average. We are in the midst of one of the warmest stretches of weather this summer and the unseasonable warmth will continue through early to mid next week.

Forecast Details:

Partly cloudy to clear skies are expected tonight with lows in the upper 50s to mid 60s. Fog could develop again after midnight.

Thursday will remain very warm and mostly dry. A weak cool front will try to drop through the area. Because it is forecast to be a weak front, the chance of rain is still low at this point. I’ll put the rain percentage chance at 20%. I expect a lot of dry time with the best chance of rain coming after around 2 or 3pm. I think some areas will remain completely dry through the day. Highs will range in the low to mid 80s. Friday remains very warm with highs in the low 80s.

The upcoming Labor Day weekend looks dry. Saturday, Sunday and even Labor Day are shaping up to be partly cloudy to sunny and very warm. Highs through this upcoming weekend may remain in the mid 80s, or roughly 10-15 degrees above average.

A look at Labor Day shows partly cloudy and very warm conditions remaining in place. Highs will be in the mid 80s. The heat could stick around through early to mid next week but looks to lose its grip on the area by later next week. A cold front will bring a chance of showers and storms Tuesday and perhaps some leftover showers Wednesday as well. The chance of precipitation is 30% both days.
