      Today's Forecast

      Today's Forecast Image
      • 76°
      • 50°

      Updated Wednesday, August 23, 2017

      We have one more day full of sunshine before small chances of rain track back in. However, cooler than normal temperatures continue through next week. Highs today reach the low to upper 70s. A few 80s may be sprinkled in the mix farther south. Overnight, a disturbance moves through and brings clouds along with a chance for rain into the area. Lows fall to the 50s across the board. 

      A stray shower is possible Thursday and possibly again on Friday. By Friday, we have a warm front slowly approaching from the west. It continues its approach into the weekend. If we don't see showers or storms ahead of the front, we definitely notice the increased cloud cover. Storm chances increase as a system crosses the state during the late weekend.
