The cold front that brought a few non-severe thunderstorms to the region last evening has cleared south of the Valley this morning. High pressure will dominate our weather through the weekend setting our area up for sunshine galore.
Slightly cooler and much drier air will remain in place today. Temperatures this afternoon might reach 80° in some of our southern communities. Otherwise, look for afternoon highs in the upper 70s under clear sunny skies.
Keep the sunshine and tack on a degree or two for Saturday. By Sunday temperatures should warm to the low 80s. The big difference will be the almost total lack of humidity through the weekend.
Turn off the A/C and open the windows.
The only weather issue we will have locally will be areas of fog Saturday and Sunday morning. Temperatures will drop off during the night to near the dew point – upper 50s. That will cause patchy fog before sunrise that will hang around through early morning.
MONDAY THROUGH MIDWEEK
Dry and mostly sunny weather looks to continue to start the new work week but the surface high pressure that brings our nice weekend weather will shift off to the east. Low pressure will then track into the region and bring a pattern shift through midweek.
Showers and thunderstorms look to develop on Tuesday and continue into Wednesday. A fairly decent cold front is poised to travel across the region on Wednesday and this is likely to knock temperatures back to the mid to upper 70s for the latter part of next week.
