Smoke from Canadian wildfires will continue to blow through the area creating hazy conditions and lowered air quality. Check AirNow for current air quality conditions. Smoke should not be as heavy on Friday thanks to a shift in the steering currents.
This evening will be clear and quiet, but a combination of weather ingredients will lead to increasing cloud cover and eventually spotty showers by sunrise. The showers will be more widespread to the southwest closer to a front draped over Oklahoma.
Spotty showers will linger into Friday morning before shifting off to the south. Clouds will follow suit and Friday afternoon looks nice and bright. Temperatures look similar to today’s, maybe a degree or two cooler.
The weekend looks great. Saturday will begin cool and struggle to make the low 80s in the afternoon. Skies will be sunny and winds light from the northeast. Upper 50s return Saturday night into Sunday morning turning into mid-80s again Sunday afternoon.
Another round of rain showers is possible going Monday into Tuesday of next week. This system may impact areas north of Highway 60 more than areas south, which would be great news for drought-stricken areas. Temperatures next week also look to hold in the mid to upper 70s for a few days.
