Weather Synopsis: If you liked today's sunshine, the weekend forecast might night be your cup of tea, but then we are looking at record warmth into the weekend. High pressure has been controlling our forecast for today, but as it slides off to the East, and we get some warmer air into the region, but that comes with the threat of rainfall this weekend as well. The clouds will increase on Friday, as we're looking for more clouds than sunshine, and the chance of rain comes in late Friday and lasts right into the entire weekend. As we get into the weekend, temperatures will really SOAR! We are looking at mid 60's on Sunday, with the potential of some of our southern zones hitting the lower 70's before the front rolls through. We would be breaking the record high on Sunday if we achieve my forecast high... As we approach the Christmas Holiday next week, it looks to be dry, but seasonable with temperatures into the 30's.
Have a great Thursday and I will see you on WHAG News starting at 5:00 PM...
