Break out the shorts and sunglasses today! We are in for a lot of sunshine and plenty of warmth. Highs will be in the low to middle 80s across most of the area. We could be close to record highs in a few areas.

A weak front will drift through our state on Thursday. Ahead of this front, we should still make it into the upper 70s to near 80°. With the warmth and the front, we may see a few thunderstorms develop Thursday afternoon.

It won't be all that much cooler on Friday, after the front goes through the highs. We're in for a cloudy sky, but highs will be in the middle 70s. Most of the day should be dry.
That will change just in time for the weekend.

Saturday could be a soggy day. If we get a lot of rain, our highs will really struggle. It's possible we stay in the lower 60s. However, should the rain bypass the area and we keep most of the day dry, highs may jump into the upper 60s.

A rebound is expected on Sunday, with highs jumping back to near 80°. However, more rain and thunder are possible.



Today:  Morning clouds, then plenty of sunshine. Much warmer. High: 84° (record: 87 in 1948) Wind: S 10-20 mph

Tonight: Partly cloudy and very mild. Low: 65° Wind: S 5-15 mph

Thursday: Sunny to partly cloudy with a good chance of rain and thunderstorms in the early afternoon. Still warm. High: 80° Wind: S 10-25 mph

Friday: Partly to mostly cloudy, not as warm but still above average. High: 74° Wind: S 10-20 mph
