A Cool Down to End the Work Week and a Beautiful Saturday to Get Outside!

Forecast Highlights:
Thursday: High, 84. Low, 64. Foggy conditions in the morning clearing around lunchtime. A 20% chance of isolated thunderstorms in the afternoon. Winds 5-10 knots N.

Friday: High, 87. Low, 65. Clouds clearing out for mostly sunny conditions. Winds 5-10 knots NE. A beautiful start to the weekend!

Saturday: High, 85. Low, 62. Winds NE 5-10 knots. Partly cloudy with clouds increasing into the evening.

Sunday: High, 83. Low, 60. Winds SE 5-10 knots. Clouds increasing with 20% chance of showers and thunderstorms.

A cold frontal boundary swept through the southeast last night bringing much cooler temperatures and foggy morning conditions on Thursday. Highs will remain in the upper 80's with lows in the mid-60's for the remainder of the week into the weekend. The trough that came in Wednesday bringing the severe weather will continue to advance out to the east with clearing skies into Friday. Friday will bring sunshine into the Commonwealth with highs reaching back up slightly from Thursday and Friday as a ridge of high pressure and surface high pressure builds in behind the exiting trough.

GFS MSLP 1000-500 mb thickness precipitation (in) valid for 1 pm CDT

The next chance at showers/thunderstorms will come Sunday as the surface high moves off the Atlantic Coast and a southern flow returns our moisture source into the area. Thunderstorm activity will be scattered in nature. Cloud cover will move in Sunday increasing into Sunday night.
