- A quiet and cool night
- Showers, a few storms return Friday
- A cool, fall-like weekend ahead
A cold front will quickly bring clouds and showers to the area over the next few hours, StormCenter 7 Rich Wirdzek said. The leading edge of the front could bring some briefly heavier rain and a bit of thunder. Temperatures will sharply fall from the mid 70s down into the mid 60s as the front pushes through. Showers are expected to stick around into the evening, but the lightning threat will be very low, so this should bode better for football games. Showers will taper down late in the evening.
Friday: Clouds will continue to increase with scattered showers developing along a cold front. A few thunderstorms also will be possible during the afternoon. Temperatures will reach into the middle 70s by early afternoon and then begin to fall late in the day.
Friday Night Football: Showers will linger into the early evening and could impact the start of some high school football games. However showers should be moving out with some clearing as we head into the night. Grab the sweatshirts though as temperatures will fall into the lower 50s by Saturday morning.
Saturday: More clouds than sunshine are expected through the day, especially by afternoon. There will be a slight chance for a passing shower during the afternoon. Temperatures will be unseasonably cool with highs only expected to be in the middle to upper 60s.
Sunday: Expect a mix of sun and clouds with fall-like temperatures sticking around. The day will start with temperatures in the upper 40s and then climb into the middle to upper 60s by afternoon.
Monday: Sunshine returns with very pleasant conditions. A slow warming trend gets underway with highs rebounding into the lower 70s.
Tuesday: Another sunny day is expected with temperatures rising into the upper 70s by afternoon.
