The past couple of days have been nothing short of pleasant. An east wind and low dewpoints have made for a very comfortable Thursday. Changes will slowly creep in as we get closer to the weekend. Clouds will increase tonight with a slight chance of isolated showers around or shortly after midnight. Temperatures fall to the upper 50s.

A system moving out of the central plains will be out next weathermaker. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will be possible Friday morning with lingering clouds during the day. Despite the clouds temperatures should still make it to the upper 70s with the help of a brisk south wind. Additional isolated showers and storms will be possible Friday night and very early Saturday morning before exiting off to the east.

For those of you participating in the Bix festivities this weekend, don’t worry. Most of the rain should be out of here by the time the race begins. Skies become partly sunny Saturday afternoon with highs climbing to the mid 80s. The humidity will briefly make a return as well. Our next chance for rain holds off until early Sunday morning.
