Saturday will be a degree or two cooler thanks to Friday’s weak cold front but temps should still get back into the 80s for most of us. With the heat comes the risk of an afternoon storm but again, most should stay dry as these will be highly isolated. Simply keep a weather eye to the sky if you plan on taking advantage of the nice sunshine we’ll have otherwise.

Sunday is trending drier with only a handful of us seeing showers, mainly towards our south. As we begin to see winds move in from the south a touch more humidity and more morning sunshine will help foster an afternoon shower or storm. For most of us, Sunday will be a nice summer-like day with temps in the mid to upper 80s.

Monday another system grazes our region adding a touch more humidity and energy into our region. A few showers here and there throughout the day still possible with dry hours in between showers and storms. Just another day to keep an eye on the skies and the umbrella close by. Highs remain near average in the 80s.

Tuesday a system moves in bringing widespread heavy rain fall at times. We’ll be watching for heavy downpours leading to localized high water and the chance of a severe thunderstorm or two in the afternoon. It’ll be a day to stay weather aware for sure. Temps will work their way up to the low 80s before falling sharply the next couple of days thanks to a strong cold front.

Wednesday we hold on to a few showers in the morning and early parts of the afternoon. After which we’ll being to see clearing skies as temps drop below the 80 degree mark. The cold front from Tuesday will usher in a bit of a pattern change for us bringing us back down below average in temps.

Thursday we begin to dry out for most of the day and sunshine returning for all of us by the afternoon. Temps still cool in the mid to upper 70s. This will be a trend that stick with us for the next few days.   

In your extended day forecast we see a few chances of rain here and there as we close out the month of August. However, the biggest change in the chance for a big cool down in long range forecasts for the first week of September. A signal that the first day of fall isn’t too far away.

Remember late summer can still host a few strong to even severe thunderstorms so it’s always a good idea to stay weather aware. Make sure you have 3 ways to get weather alerts like severe thunderstorms warnings, flood alerts, and other emergency communications regarding weather hazards.
