Weather Summary

Today's Forecast

Today's Forecast Image
  • 67°
  • 54°

Clouds will continue today along with drizzle and some scattered light showers.  The low pressure system that dumped more than 2 inches of rain over a widespread area on Friday is now rotating over our area with the bulk of the rain well to our north.  As long as the low is in the vicinity, the clouds and drizzle will remain.  This system won't leave the area until late Sunday afternoon with some partial clearing late in the day.  And, as you would expect, as the weekend ends, very fine weather will return for most of next week.  Highs Saturday and Sunday will be in the mid to upper 60s, then mid 70s for Monday then lower 80s for the rest of the week.
