Sunny & Pleasant Today and Thursday 

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:


High pressure building towards the area today will bring us sunny and pleasant conditions. An upper level disturbance will pass to our north and east today and will likely graze us with a few clouds mainly over northern and eastern parts of the state this afternoon. Temperatures will be a bit milder with highs in the upper 50s to mid-60s this afternoon. Skies will be clear tonight and with light winds expect chilly temperatures with lows near 30° north and 30s to near 40° elsewhere.


High pressure will dominate our forecast Thursday giving us a beautiful, sunny day and temperatures in the 60s to near 70°. The area of high pressure will move east of the region Friday allowing clouds ahead of our next weathermaker to start moving into the state. We’ll likely start with some sunshine Friday morning followed by increasing clouds during the afternoon. A warm front pushing towards the region will give us a chance for a few showers Friday afternoon and evening. Low pressure is forecast to pass to our north Saturday and pull a cold front across the state late in the day and into Saturday night. As the front approaches, then crosses the state, we’ll see plenty of clouds Saturday with scattered showers throughout the day and night. Despite the clouds and showers Saturday, temperatures will be mild with highs in the 60s. Our weather will improve on Sunday as low pressure moves away from the state. We may still see a few lingering showers in the morning but otherwise expect skies to clear out as the morning progresses with a good amount of sun during the afternoon and temperatures a couple degrees either side of 70° for highs.



Rest of Today: mostly sunny with a few clouds mainly over northern and eastern areas. Milder with highs between 57°-66°. Northwest wind around 10 MPH.


Tonight: clear and chilly. Lows between 29°-39°. Light northwest wind.


Thursday: mostly sunny and mild. Highs in the 60s to near 70°. Northwest wind around 10 MPH.


Friday: increasing clouds. A few afternoon scattered showers possible. Highs between 59°-65°, coolest along the coast.


Saturday: mostly cloudy with scattered showers. Highs in the 60s.


Sunday: a morning shower possible then partly to mostly sunny and mild. Highs in the mid-60s to low 70s.
