The tone has been set as highs Friday made a run back to near 70 and now the pump is primed for highs much warmer than that through the weekend!
Saturday starts with considerable cloudiness and perhaps a few sprinkles. I expect to see breaks of sun mix in during the afternoon for a big warm up into the mid to upper 70s with some 80 degree highs likely in the southern half of the area.
I also can’t rule out a few showers across the northern half of the area during the afternoon and evening as a front moves across the northern tier of the country and brushes our area later in the day.
Sunday is mostly to partly sunny and very warm. Highs reach the lower to mid 80s!! We should see mid 80s to near 90 on Monday fresh off the weekend before the next big cool down pushes in.
