Weather Summary:

We are tracking high pressure in the StormTrack 5 Weather Center. This high is slipping east across the Ohio Valley and Great Lakes. The circulation around the high pressure brought a east/southeast flow of air up against the east side of the mountains today.  This produced a wedge of cool air along the eastern slopes, as well as a few light rain showers.  These showers have since dissipated.

Tonight will be partly cloudy and comfortable. Some patchy dense fog it possible with lows dropping into the 50s most areas.

The weather Saturday is looking great with lots of sunshine and low humidity levels.

StormTrack 5 meteorologists are tracking a cold front that will make it into the area late Sunday. This front will bring scattered showers and isolated thundershowers to the region Sunday afternoon through early Monday morning. The best chance of rain will be late Sunday afternoon through the evening. Don't cancel any outdoor plans, but keep and eye to the sky and the radar on or the StormTrack 5 mobile app.

Behind this front, a large area of high pressure will settle in and become the main weather feature for Monday through Thursday. This will deliver tons of sun Monday afternoon through Thursday. Humidity levels will be low with cool nights and warm days... perfect weather to generate fall color!

Highs will be in the upper 70s to lower 80s through Sunday. Cooler Monday through Thursday with highs in the mid to upper 70s. Lows will be in the mid to upper 50s through Saturday night. Chilly nights are ahead next week with lows in the upper 40s to lower 50s.

This will be the last full weekend of summer. Autumn will officially arrive at 10:29 Monday night. The cooler air will be arriving right on time!

Our normal high is 78°, low 54°.
