The First Warning Storm Team is tracking a BIG change in temperatures.

We have a big swing in temperatures to end your workweek. Scattered showers heading into the overnight hours thanks to a cold front. We may even hear a rumble of thunder. Lows will be in the lower 60s. Winds will increase out of the north as well. We’ll see wind speeds between 10 and 25 mph with higher gusts.

A chance for a few lingering showers into Friday morning, with skies gradually clearing as we head through the day. Our high for the day will happen early, with temperatures falling throughout the day. Highs will hover around the upper 50s to lower 60s. Temperatures will feel cooler with the gusty winds out of the north. Gusts up to 30 mph are possible.

The weekend is looking dry and sunny! Temperatures will be on the cooler side Saturday with highs in the upper 50s to near 60. By Sunday, highs will climb into the mid 60s. Temperatures look to climb to near 70 through Election Day.
