LATEST FORECAST DISCUSSION
Meteorologist: Drew Williams
If you're thinking it will probably cool off this weekend, think again. This pattern will hold until the next cold front arrives which may not be until late Sunday or more likely early next week. Keep this in mind if you'll be enjoying any of the outside festivities this weekend including The Warrens Cranberry Festival, International Fall Festival or any of the walks. Use the sunblock and remember to drink plenty of water. If you or your neighbors are sensitive to the heat and humidity, take some time to enjoy a spot with air conditioning and again, be sure to stay hydrated!
We will be watching how close any scattered showers and storms out ahead of the front may come into our area. For now I've dropped the rain chance today, and the rest of the weekend looks mostly dry with showers and storms as close as Minnesota but staying there. We can expect a partly to mostly sunny sky through out the day and perhaps at least some extra clouds on Sunday if not a shower or two. Today won't be as hot as Friday but still plenty hot. Highs this afternoon will top out around 90, normal highs got late September are in the upper 60's and low 70's. Expect low to mid 80's on Sunday and humidity will be a factor both days.
Rain and storm chances will then be increasing into Monday and Tuesday of next week as the front finally works through our area. This will have the potential to bring some needed rainfall in what has been a very dry month overall and it will also allow temperatures to cool off, falling back through into the upper 70's and low 80's Monday. A more significant cool down is expected starting Tuesday with highs around 70, followed by highs in the mid to low 60's by the middle of the week. Actually a little below average and feeling more like fall.
Have a great weekend and stay cool!
