Forecast: Feeling like late September

The cool airmass continues to slide in Thursday and will promote sunshine, a healthy breezy and unseasonably cool temps thorughout the day. Things turn around over the upcoming weekend and we'll warm things up for some rare summerlike weather as we move through next week.


Extended weather forecast

Skies will be mostly sunny throughout the day. With winds out of the northwest at 10 to 15 mph we'll see afternoon highs a full 10 degrees below what we normally see in mid August, topping out in the low and mid 70's (83 is the average over the past 30 years).

Winds diminish overnight and with clear skies we'll see many towns drop into the 40's by dawn Friday morning. We should see pure sunshine Friday and with very light breezes with the high pressure system right overhead we will grow a bit warmer with highs getting into the mid and upper 70's.

Saturday is the "pick of the weekend" with partly cloudy skies and highs getting into the upper 70's. We have a frontal boundary moving into the region Saturday night and Sunday that will give us our next shot a rain with scattered showers and thunderstorms.
