Sunny weather leads to warm up over next two days.....
With high pressure building to the west, our skies will remain clear over the next few days. Temps will benefit from the increased sunshine, jumping from near 70° to the upper 70s. A shift in winds, from the northeast to the north to northwest, will also help water levels return to normal.
A front will push across the area on Friday, bringing rain back to the region. This will be a quick rain event compared to the rains we saw last week as models show the rain exiting the area by Saturday morning. The weekend will be noticeably cooler due to the passing front, with highs maxing out in the low 70s.
Hurricane Joaquin is moving deeper into the north Atlantic with winds of 80 mph. The storm will continue to move towards Europe.
