Local News

AVERAGE HIGH FOR MAY 8TH: 67°

AVERAGE LOW FOR MAY 8TH: 40°

WEDNESDAY SUNRISE: 5:54 AM    

WEDNESDAY SUNSET: 8:14 PM

High pressure slowly moves out and our next disturbance approaches the region from the west. Increasing clouds through late Wednesday night with an isolated shower/sprinkles possible. Most staying dry through the overnight, though. Lows Wednesday night in the low to mid 40s.

Turning cloudy through Thursday as a warm front lifts into the region. This draws in some moisture, but most of the rainfall holds off until the overnight. Gusty south winds over 25 mph at times ushering in the moisture and the warmth. Highs Thursday into the low to mid 60s. Showers likely by the overnight and lows in the mid to upper 50s.

Showers likely for Friday with late day thunderstorms also possible as a cold front passes the region. Strong wind gusts possible with some of the convection that may pop up along with locally heavy rainfall. Total rainfall amounts from Thursday night through Friday staying under 1″, something to keep an eye on for areas prone to poor drainage. Highs Friday into the low to mid 70s.

Cooler and drier air filters in for Saturday in the wake of Friday’s cold front. Highs Saturday near 60 degrees with some sunshine. Chance for showers returns Sunday and highs near 60 degrees.
