Even with a cold front drifting across the state, Thursday was another beautiful day. The front stirred up a few more clouds, and temperatures were only a skosh cooler, but readings were still way above the average of 58-degrees.
Our weather winning streak will continue right on into the weekend. There will be an autumn chill in the air early Friday morning as readings settle into the upper 30s. With full sunshine and a southerly breeze, temperatures will be quick to recover. By midday, readings will be moving through the middle 60s, while highs for the afternoon sneak into the lower 70s. Saturday will feature just a little bit of high cloudiness, and southerly winds will be stronger. That combination should push temperatures easily into the 70s.
Sunday will give us one more shot at 70-degrees. As a cold front (stronger than Thursday's) moves in from the west, our clouds will thicken up, and some rain will move in late in the day. As the rain moves in, our winds will shift from the south, to the west. That shift in our wind direction will bring to an end our current stretch of lovely weather. Off & on showers will be a good bet early next week as our temperatures turn noticeably cooler. - JR
