NOWCAST THROUGH LATE MORNING:
Patchy drizzle ending. Becoming partly sunny late morning.
6am: Mostly Cloudy 51°
8am: Partly Cloudy 54°
10am: Partly Sunny 55°

FINALLY DRYING OUT:
This morning will start cloudy and cool but some big improvements are on the way as the weekend approaches. High pressure builds over the region bringing back sunshine and pleasant temperatures. A weak cold front will pass through late Friday into early Saturday bringing only a few clouds and some cooler air. Highs will reach into the mid 70s Friday, but fall back into the mid 60s through the weekend. Daytime readings will remain in the low to mid 60s (about 10° below average) and lows will dip into the low to mid 40s through Wednesday of next week!

COOLER DAYS AHEAD:
