Few Widely Scattered Showers Today, Brighter & Warmer Weekend Ahead 

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:


An upper level disturbance crossing the region today will give us variably cloudy skies this afternoon along with the chance for a few more widely scattered showers. With clouds in place and a cooler northeast wind, temperatures will run near or a little below average with highs mainly in the low to mid-70s. Any showers that develop will wind down this evening followed by partial clearing as high pressure builds in from the north. Nighttime lows will drop to the low to mid-50s for most locales with a few spots up north possible cooling into the upper 40s.


High pressure is forecast to build in from the north on Saturday giving us a brighter start to the weekend with partly to mostly sunny skies expected. Temperatures on Saturday will be in the low to mid-70s for highs. The area of high pressure is expected to slide to our south and west as the weekend progresses which will usher some warmer air into the region for Sunday and beyond. Sunday will feature plenty of sunshine with highs topping off in the mid-70s along the coast and upper 70s to low 80s inland. High pressure will remain in control of our weather through the first half of next week giving us sunshine and warm temperatures with highs on Monday and Tuesday in the mid-70s along the coast and upper 70s to low 80s in most locales with a few spots away from the coastline possibly hitting the mid-80s.



Rest of Today: variably cloudy with a few widely scattered showers possible. Highs between 69°-76°. East/northeast wind 5-10 MPH.


Tonight: a few scattered showers possible early then becoming partly cloudy. Lows between 48°-57°. Light northeast wind.


Saturday: partly to mostly sunny with highs in the 70s. Northeast wind 5-10 MPH.
