Summer Heat Slowly Returns… 5:00 p.m. Fri 1 August 2014
The surface and upper-level storm system that brought heavy-duty rainfall Thursday has pushed off to the southeast, and this should allow for a stable weather pattern to evolve. Clouds will slowly thin overnight and this may allow for the formation of some fog Saturday morning.
Any fog should break up and leave us with a mostly sunny and very pleasant day.
Temperatures will slowly rise over the weekend and should be around 90 by Sunday.
A continued warming trend is expected through the middle of next week with seasonably hot weather, highs in the mid 90s.
No significant chance of rain is indicated through the period.
