Drying Out, Warming Up for the Weekend 5:00 p.m. Thu 31 July 2014
July ended on a super-soggy note with widespread two to four inch rainfalls, with a few spots such as Clayton receiving five and a half inches.
Drizzle or light showers may linger into the overnight hours before ending.
Clouds will be slow to clear Friday, but the departure of the low pressure elements should allow for this to take place west to east by afternoon with our eastern counties clearing latest in the day.
Look for sun-filled skies for the weekend and into next week with no rain expected, temperatures will rise into the seasonably hot range with highs in the mid 90s by Tuesday.
Here are the numbers:
Tonight: Cloudy, Patchy Drizzle…Lows 65 to 68 Friday: Decreasing Clouds …..Highs 77 east to 85 west Saturday: Mostly Sunny …..66/87 Sunday: Sunny …..68/89 Monday: Sunny …..68/92 Tuesday: Sunny …..70/94 Wednesday: Mostly Sunny…..72/95 Thursday: Mostly Sunny…..73/96
