Weather Summary:

A large area of high pressure will take control of our weather as we go into the holiday weekend, leaving us with nice conditions. For the night-time, that means temperatures will be able to drop below the average.  Some higher elevations may even get down into the upper 30s.  Frost isn't expected, but it will be quite chilly to start Saturday morning.  The benefit of this area high pressure is that afternoons will feature sunshine, warm temperatures, and low humidity throughout the holiday weekend.  Temperatures by Sunday afternoon may reach the mid 80s.

Isolated afternoon thundershowers are possible on Monday, but most areas look to stay dry. There's no need to cancel any of your holiday plans as rain chances look low. We will crank up the heat and humidity for Memorial Day with highs near 90!

A summer-like weather pattern will set up for much of next week.  An area of low pressure will be forced to the north of our area.  This same system will be responsible for heavy rain and strong storms out west during the weekend.  Ahead of this system, a southwest air flow will result in heat, humidity, and scattered thundershowers especially in the afternoons from Tuesday through Friday.

Recap: Highs near 80 Saturday, mid 80s Sunday, and upper 80s to near 90 Monday.  Highs in the low to mid 80s for the remainder of the week. Lows in the upper30s to mid 40s tonight, near 50 Saturday night, mid 50s Sunday night, and upper 50s to near 60 for the rest of the week.

Our average high is 77°, low 53°.
