The combination of a mainly clear sky and less wind will set the stage for a chilly night. Lows will be in the 40s in many locations. An area of high pressure will continue to slide into the area on Friday which will give us more sunshine than clouds Friday. After a cool morning the mercury will rebound into the lower 70s. A clear sky and light winds will set the stage for the chilliest night of this stretch Fright night. Some of the colder valley locations may drop to near 40. As this high pressure system slides to the east, warmer and more humid air will slowly make a return. Temperatures will reach into the middle 70s on Saturday as sunshine will mix with clouds. There will be a few showers and thunderstorms scattered around the area Saturday night into Sunday as a disturbance slides through the area. The clouds and rainfall may keep temperatures from rising too much on Sunday with highs in the 70s to near 80. Monday will feature a mix of clouds and sunshine with only the chance for a pop up shower or thunderstorm and highs near or just above 80. Another disturbance may give us a better chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms Tuesday. Later next week looks quite warm and humid with clouds and sunshine and the chance for a pop up shower or thunderstorm each afternoon or evening. Temperatures will reach into the middle 80s. And not only will the days be warm, but the nights will become muggier with lows in the 60s so fans and air conditioners will likely be put back into service. The warmth should last through the next upcoming weekend.
