First Warning Forecast

Winter cold retreats, milder mid-week

Posted: Updated:

It's a lot more seasonable today. It's not quite as bright as yesterday but at least it is feeling more like October! And despite a lot of clouds we have some sunshine as well.  A frontal boundary may give us a sprinkle or spot shower, mainly across Franklin County but that is all. This front will stay draped across the area through tomorrow as well. This means clouds will stick around along with the chance of a sprinkle or two. Temperatures both days will reach into the low to middle 60s but both today and tomorrow will be mainly dry. 

A cold front will move our way on Thursday but for most of the day we'll remain out ahead of the front. This will increase our southerly flow and as the sun may come out as well, at least partially, temperatures will spike into the lower 70s! A few showers will develop during the afternoon or evening as this front sweeps through but most of the day will be delightful! Behind the front cooler air arrives to close out the workweek.

The fall chill (not winter chill) arrives on Friday with high temperatures in the 50s. A gusty breeze will make it feel a bit cooler. It will be chilly but dry for the high school football games Friday evening. Temperatures will bounce back a bit for the weekend with plenty of sunshine on Saturday and a few showers Sunday afternoon. The Rays of Hope Walk and Run looks dry and cool for now. Showers should hold off until later in the day.
