We'll end today and Friday on a quiet note with a mix of clouds and lots of sunshine. Temperatures will remain warm with high's in the mid to upper 80's this weekend.
The outlook for Friday will remain very similar to today with high's in the low to mid 80's (for the southern region). Sunshine will also return with a mix of cloud cover working through in the afternoon. Though temps will be above average, dew points will remain in the 50's Friday. This will make things feel a bit closer to the true temperature rather than sticky and hot.
Outlining the weekend ahead, model guidance continues to suggest rainfall into Saturday and Sunday. This will depend how close the low pressure system gets and how much moisture will still be associated with it. A majority of this activity (Saturday) will stay to the higher elevations will day time heating and orographic lift being the main contributor. Nonetheless, I am not expecting a ton of shower/t'storm activity with isolated afternoon showers being the likely outcome. This will continue into Sunday as the low draws closer. Shower and a few storms will likely be a bit more widespread Sunday afternoon and overnight. Cooler air will slide through on Monday with scattered showers possible. High's in the lower 70's and sunshine will return for Tuesday and mid-week.
That will wrap it up for today but I wish everyone a wonderful Thursday.
