Tracking a big cold front… We are tracking a cold front stretching from Texas to the Great Lakes as it slides east. We will be ahead of the front today, on the warm side. Watch out for areas of fog this morning but skies will clear by midday. Highs today will warm to near 80, about 15 degrees above normal for this time of year. Clouds and rain will build in Saturday morning and will stick with us for much of the day. A stray storm may mix in as the front pushes through around midday. Highs will hit 70 in the morning but will drop into the 60s through the afternoon. Much cooler air moves in for Sunday with highs only in the upper 50s. Any leftover clouds and showers should clear out early Sunday morning.

Today: AM Fog, Clearing Skies. Highs near 80. Winds: SW 5-15

Tonight: Partly to Mostly Cloudy. Lows in the upper 60s. Winds: SW 5-15

Tomorrow: Mostly Cloudy, Rain (80%), Possible Storms. Highs near 70. Winds: SW/N 5-15

Tropical Update
