Friday, August 15 Afternoon Forecast Discussion

High pressure is still firmly in control of the area today, allowing only a few clouds to pass through the afternoon and early evening hours. We will get rid of the clouds overnight but will see them return tomorrow as more moisture funnels into the area from our south and west.

With the return of moisture also comes the return of warmer temperatures. We look to make it back to the middle 90s Saturday and stay in the middle 90s through next week.

As moisture continues to build as well, a front will approach our area from the north on Sunday and then stall to our north. This front will act as a focusing mechanism for showers and storms Sunday afternoon and especially Monday. The front looks to exit/dissolve to our north on Tuesday, which will drop rain chances to only a small chance at a pop-up storm Wednesday through Friday as highs make a run towards the upper 90s and the warmest readings of the year into the weekend.
