Sky Alert Weather Forecast

High pressure builds in from the Central Plains and keeps the region pleasant and dry today. A disturbance working eastward to our north could overspread a few extra clouds across the Commonwealth. Otherwise, look for a mostly sunny day with highs back in the upper 70’s. Tonight, partly cloudy skies prevail as overnight lows cool off into the mid 50’s. A relatively calm night is expected with patchy fog developing by early Thursday morning.

The aforementioned high pressure will work eastward as winds turn more from the south by late week. A low pressure system and its attendant cold front will work eastward as cloud cover increases ahead of it. In return, we’ll start mostly sunny for Thursday before cloud cover takes over by Thursday night. Highs top out in the upper 70’s with overnight lows in the low 60’s.

As the cold front edges closer to the state, rain chances increase starting Friday morning. Best chances for showers, perhaps a thunderstorm arrive in the afternoon hours. Overall, a soggy day prevails with cooler highs in the low 70’s.

The rainfall comes to an end from the west to east late Friday night before the cold front clears the region. A few lingering showers are possible Saturday morning, but most dry out. Cooler air filters in as highs only reach the mid-upper 60’s.

We're halfway there....Happy Wednesday!
