It was a another chilly start but temperatures have been climbing fast! High temperatures this afternoon will reach close to 70 under plenty of blue skies and sunshine! It will be a nice afternoon to spend time outdoors. If you can't get out this afternoon there is more nice weather on the way! In fact, the next three days will feature sunshine before showers or a period of rain arrives late on Friday.
Two fronts will move our way this week. The first will arrive tomorrow night but you'll hardly notice since we are not expecting any rain with this front. It will just bring in slightly cooler temperatures for Thursday, after readings reach into the lower 70s tomorrow.
A second front will arrive Friday. This one will have a bit more energy with it so showers or a period of rain is likely either during the afternoon or evening. It's not going to be a washout but you'll need the umbrella on stand by for Friday. It looks as though it could be damp for the Friday evening high school football games.
The good news is that this system will remain progressive so it will be gone by Saturday and much of this long holiday weekend is looking good!
