After another beautiful finish to the day, a milder night can be expected, thanks to a light southerly wind that will stick around into tomorrow. We are starting off clear, but some mid and high level clouds will begin to stream in from the west, leaving us partly cloudy by morning. Lows will be in the milder 50's.
A cold front will be impacting our weather the next few days, but if the current timing holds, the impact will be fairly minimal during the daylight hours. Friday will feature a mix of clouds and sunshine. It should be a decent day with low rain chances through the afternoon. A strengthening southerly breeze could bring gusts over 25mph in the afternoon, while temperatures climb back into the 70's. There could be a scattered shower or two around for the area high school football games, but mainly dry is the way to go. Most of the showers and storms that develop are expected to be right near and along the front, and won't be arriving until later at night, especially after midnight. The front will then be moving away by morning, bringing a clearing sky and nice start to the weekend.
Saturday will be mostly sunny and breezy, with a quick warm up into the early afternoon, when we will likely be seeing our daily highs. Temperatures will be well into the 70's before starting to cool some by later afternoon. A secondary front will arrive from the northwest and could bring a late day or evening shower/storm, but again it's a mostly dry forecast. Cooler air will then flow in for the second half of the weekend, with highs falling back into the 60's, but it will be dry and there will be some sun around for the final full day of summer.
The autumn season "officially" arrives late Monday evening, but it won't be feeling very fall-like next week as a warmer air mass quickly returns. A large high pressure system will cover much of the central and eastern U.S., bringing dry weather along with a slow by steady warming trend. We will see highs back into the 70's which will be a touch above average.
