August 17th, 2013 Forecast

Tonight, another cool night under partly cloudy skies.  While lows around the Metro in the lower 60's, temperatures will drop into the mid-50's to the north and west and the upper 50's to the south and east.  Winds will be light out of the south.  Saturday will start out decently with partly sunny skies and temperatures in the upper 70's to lower 80's.  By nightfall, clouds will start to increase ahead of our next rain maker.  Winds will be light and variable, but by the afternoon will switch from the east at 5 to 10 mph.

By Sunday, and the latter half of the weekend, we'll be looking at mostly cloudy skies with a few showers moving through the region.  Temperatures dip down into the upper 70's, with more humid lows in the mid-60's.  The unsettled weather sticks around into the next workweek, with Monday also seeing mostly cloudy skies and a chance of showers and thunderstorms.  Highs bump up on Tuesday, with temperatures in the mid-80's under partly sunny skies.  It will feel more humid with a few lingering showers or a thunderstorm or two.  We get back up to above normal on Wednesday and Thursday with partly to mostly sunny skies and highs in the upper 80's and lows in the lower 70s.  By next Friday, we'll turn the heat up under hazy sunshine.  Highs will reach up to near the 90-degree mark.
