Another great day of weather in the books with more to follow.

The great pattern is partly due to side effects from a Gulf Coast storm as it continues to draw mild and dry air into the area.

Skies will be sun-filled Wednesday with temperatures continuing the slow march higher. The warming trend will continue through Thursday and Friday, ending with highs near 80° Friday afternoon. Sunshine will continue to be the dominant theme, but we’ll see a bit more high cloudiness Thursday and maybe even partly sunny skies Friday.

The latest data continues to be inconsistent regarding our next rain chance Friday evening. Scattered rain and thunderstorms could develop Friday evening or they could hold off until Saturday. It all depends on the timing of an incoming cold front. Either way, rain does not appear widespread and this will likely be a scattered event.

Cooler temperatures will also come with Saturday’s cold front with a cool finish to the weekend. Afternoon temperatures may stay in the low to mid-60s and overnight lows in the upper 30s to around 40 degrees Sunday.

Temperatures will again march higher early next week with additional rain chances possible around the middle of next week.
