Breezy and cool today
Cooler air is blowing into the region today on the heels of the cold front that sparked some thunderstorms in the area last night, making for a very fall-like Tuesday in the area. Low, gray stratus clouds will linger through much of the morning with just a few breaks of sunshine at times. Sunshine will slowly take over as we head into the afternoon while brisk northwest winds draw in cool, crisp Canadian air, occasionally reaching 15 miles per hour. High temperatures will be in the upper 60s to lower 70s which is a few degrees cooler than the seasonal average.
Clear and chilly today
High pressure will slide into the region from the northwest overnight, bringing clear, nearly calm conditions and setting the stage for an, especially cool night. Expect overnight temperatures in the mid to upper 40s across the area, making this likely the coolest night of the season so far.
Mild Wednesday sunshine
Sunshine will dominate our Wednesday weather under high pressure. Expect a mostly sunny sky with just a hint of a southwest breeze and high temperatures in the lower 70s.
Late week rain chances
Gusty south winds will kick in for Thursday behind a warm front as temperatures climb toward the upper 70s and lower 80s across the area. There will be a chance for isolated showers and a few thunderstorms during the evening hours with more widespread storms possible late in the night.
We'll have breaks of sunshine during the day Friday with scattered thunderstorms moving through the area throughout the day. High temperatures will be in the lower 70s with a slight southwest breeze.
A summer-like weekend
The final weekend of astronomical summer looks very summer-like for our region as a very warm and somewhat humid air mass will build northward. Expect sunshine and clouds Saturday with high temperatures near 80 degrees.
Sunday looks sunnier and warmer with high temperatures in the lower 80s and a southerly breeze.
Cooler weather returns next week
After a sunny and warm Monday that will feature high temperatures in the lower 80s, a cold front will trigger scattered thunderstorms next Tuesday with a few wrap-around showers behind that storm system for next Wednesday. High temperatures behind that storm system may struggle to reach 60 degrees as cool, Canadian air blows into the area for the autumnal equinox which officially takes place at 2:00 PM next Wednesday.
