The final weekend of August is shaping up to be a rather nice one weather-wise.
High pressure slides offshore tonight, and a cold front moves toward the region on Friday. Some showers and thunderstorms are expected ahead of the front, and a few of them could be quite strong, but it does not look like a widespread severe outbreak. Some of the storms may produce gusty winds and heavy downpours, but we probably won’t see the amount of rain we had in some of the storms earlier this week. The front moves offshore Friday night, then high pressure builds in for the weekend with dry and seasonably warm conditions. We may start to warm up a bit on Monday along with seeing humidity levels start to rise again as the high slides offshore.
