Forecast for Saturday, September 7, 2013

A fantastic and refreshing evening is expecting! It will be a great night for many high school football season openers. Clear skies and light winds are expected with low humidity. It will be a bit chilly later this evening, so bring a sweatshirt and a light jacket with you if you are going outdoors. Lows overnight will be dropping into the 40s and 50s across the area. A unique NASA rocket launch is occurring from Wallops Island, VA tonight at 11:27 P.M. You will likely be able to see the rocket with the clear skies. Estimates show that it will be visible in parts of our area ~40 seconds after the launch.
More sunshine and fantastic weather is expected for Saturday.
A cold front will move through the area on Sunday. An isolated shower or thunderstorm is possible, especially early in the day. Skies should turn mostly clear on Sunday Night.
The next cold front is expected to pass through the region on Thursday, bringing a chance for showers and thunderstorms.
Overall, this seven day forecast contains a fairly nice stretch of weather. We continue to watch the tropics as there are a few areas of disturbed weather. However, nothing at this moment appears to be very organized and a threat to the United States.
