Good Saturday and welcome to the weekend. Scattered storms are kicking off the weekend weather, but I’m watching some bigger changes coming for next week. It’s a setup that will bring another big blast of fall temps into town.
In the short term, we have highs in the low 80s with a scattering of showers and storms about the region. Here are your radars to track the action:
Sunday’s weather looks mainly dry, with highs in the 80s. Can we keep the skies clear for our big solar eclipse day on Monday? The models continue to show a few clouds across the region:
Hopefully, the clouds are few and far between. Highs will be in the mid- and upper 80s, but the numbers will drop by more than 10 degrees as the eclipse is underway.
Showers and storms increase Tuesday and Wednesday as a strong cold front drops in from the northwest:

Make it a great day and take care.
