Forecast Discussion

Cool high pressure will control our weather through Friday with lots of sun, dry air and comfortable temperatures. Winds turn more to the south over the weekend due to the Bermuda High taking its normal position over the Southeast. This will increase temperatures and humidity and help develop widely scattered showers and thundershowers in the afternoon and evening, in other words, more summer like. The weekend should not be a washout as much of the daytime will be dry.

A cold front will try to move in from the west early next week but the Bermuda High will keep it to our west. Our weather early next week will be summer like with warm temperatures, high humidity and scattered afternoon showers and thundershowers.
