Weekend Overview: Warmth, scattered storm chances return

Worry not! When we say “warmth” we don’t mean the oppressive heat from last weekend. Instead, what will return this weekend are temperatures more typical of late summer. Highs in the upper 80’s will be commonplace throughout the area this weekend, especially away from the area shores. Showers and thunderstorms are possible on each day, most likely during the afternoon and evening, but aren’t expected to be severe. They’ll remain isolated to scattered throughout the area.

Winds will turn southeasterly by Saturday afternoon and evening, meaning the influence of the area waters will be felt a bit more near the beaches. A bit more of a breeze and cooler temperatures are likely near the coast on both Saturday and Sunday. This southeast flow comes ahead of a cold front, which is expected to bring a period of steady rain on Sunday Night. Here are your weekend weather highlights:

  • Warm weather will return, but no oppressive heat is anticipated. High temperatures in the mid to upper 80’s are likely throughout the area.
  • Southeast winds will keep things cooler and more marine-influenced near the shore from Saturday afternoon onward.
  • A period of rain is likely on Sunday evening as a cold front moves through the area.
  • Much cooler air is likely to swing through the area for at least a few days next week, most likely from Monday through Wednesday.
