Starting off with the Stansfield's webcam in the Oak Ridge area, high cirrus clouds are present. This will do little to limit highs today, as most top out around the mid 80s. Similar conditions can be expected tomorrow, but we'll see an increase in cloud cover as a system works in from the west.
With high pressure remaining locked in place across the eastern coast, temperatures will continue to stay warm this afternoon. How warm is warm for very late September? Well, comparing our average highs to the expected, we will be running 10, and even some areas, nearly 15 degrees above average. Thankfully a cool down is on its way, but that won't arrive until early next week.
Our next weather maker will be a slow mover, with isolated showers not arriving until Saturday afternoon. By Sunday, activity will be more scattered before better chances arrive with the low and associated front Sunday night and Monday. Temperatures will cool as a result, with highs returning to the upper 60s (for some) and 70s for everyone else.
That will wrap it up for today, another warm one is expected with mostly sunny skies.
