“Almost Hot” for the Weekend Thursday 23, October 2014 5:00 AM
An upper level trough of low pressure has triggered scattered showers this morning. Rain amounts have been light and we expect the showers to end by Noon. High pressure will build in from the west Friday into our weekend with very warm to hot temperatures for this time of year. Our next chance of rain and thunderstorms will arrive Tuesday with the next upper level system and cold front. Looks like a warm up into Halloween with high pressure building back over the area.
