[anvplayer video=”5131081″ station=”998130″]

After a cool and gloomy Wednesday, we begin a trend toward sunny and warmer
weather today. Early morning cloud cover will give way to afternoon sunshine as
high pressure arrives from the northwest. Highs reach low to mid-70s for inland
communities with a northeast wind keeping shoreline communities in upper 60s. It
will be a cool and clear night with lows in mid-40s to mid-50s. Patchy fog may
develop and clear shortly after sunrise.

Friday will then feature abundant sunshine and a boost in temperatures with
highs in upper 70s to low 80s. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will be
possible Saturday morning, then additional thunderstorms may develop in the
evening. An isolated storm may be capable of severe strength with potential for
large hail, damaging winds, and heavy rain. Low rain chances linger Sunday and
Monday, then a dry stretch arrives next week. Temperatures will be toasty on
Sunday with highs in low to mid-80s. We fall closer to average on the backside
of a cold front starting Tuesday.
