      Today's Forecast

      Today's Forecast Image
      • 79°
      • 57°

      Updated Friday, August 18, 2017

      A weak disturbance will track through the KWWL viewing are today setting off some showers and thunderstorms. The main timing would be afternoon and evening, but we could have a few this morning with more overnight. While not as humid, we remain muggy today with west winds only 5 to 10 mph.

      As storms track out tonight, areas of fog, possibly dense, will form by morning. Lows will dip into the mid 50s to low 60s with upper 70s to mid 80s by Saturday afternoon. Mainly sunny skies on Saturday will have a few more clouds on Sunday... and highs and dewpoints ramp back to summertime levels. Highs will be in the mid to upper 80s for Sunday and Monday. Heat indices will approach 90 or higher. There is a chance that storms may affect our viewing of the eclipse on Monday... or, at the very least, we will have some clouds tracking through.
