While dominating high pressure keeps us sunny, quiet and dry today, it may appear overcast at times as thick smoke rides upper-level winds from wildfires in western and central Canada to our neck-of-the-woods. That smoke thickens this afternoon and those with a keen nose could smell it. If you’re extremely sensitive to smoke-related respiratory problems, while it’s not going to be terrible, you may want to spend the afternoon indoors. Top temp, mid to upper 80s with a tolerable dew point in the upper 50s to around 60 and a light southwest wind.
Tonight, increasing clouds with a low temp in the 60s. Thursday, a handful of morning scattered showers pop up, but most are dry up until midday. Then, throughout the afternoon and evening, an approaching frontal boundary brings hit-or-miss downpours along with potentially a few rumbles of thunder. It’s definitely a period to pay close attention to the radar, particularly if you’re outside. Low to mid 80s. South breeze 10 to 15 mph.
Early Friday, any last showers clear up, though clouds may linger until much later in the day. The temp nears 80 degrees with a light south wind, shifting to out of the west. Saturday is partly to mostly sunny and warm, low to mid 80s. Sunday may bring a handful of showers to northern counties, but most are dry. Low 80s.
Have a great day!
