Mostly sunny day sets stage for sunny weekend

Some areas may see showers today, the National Weather Service said, but the clouds will move out by Saturday, leaving sun and warm temperatures through early next week.

Today will likely be mostly sunny, said Bill Simpson, a National Weather Service meteorologist, with a slight chance of scattered showers throughout the day.

There is a “real, real slight chance” of thunderstorms in the late afternoon and early evening, he said. “If anything, there will be a few popups,” he said,but nothing like Thursday’s weather, when storms dropped hail and kicked up gusty winds in some areas.

Temperatures today will hover around the low 80s, and clouds will increase as the day goes on. These clouds will gradually clear overnight, as temperatures drop to the low 60s.

By Saturday, the potential showers and storms should dissipate, making for a “nice three- or four-day cycle,” Simpson said.

“Both [Saturday and Sunday] will have seasonal temperatures, maybe a little above, but pretty nice” weather, Simpson said.

Saturday, Sunday, and the beginning of next week are expected to be sunny, with temperatures in the low 80s, and a comfortable level of humidity. Some showers could move in by the middle of next week, but the weekend will be “nice and dry,” Simpson said.
