WBOY STORMTRACKER 12 WEATHER SYNOPSIS:
Could it be? An actual dry and sunny day! Even though the Autumnal Equinox is this Saturday, summer is certainly fighting to keep the heat around. Mostly sunny skies warmed the lowlands up to the mid-80s but dewpoints in the upper 60s allowed heat indices to reach 90 degrees in some spots. There will be a chance for a popup shower along the mountains this evening otherwise it'll be another warm and dry night with mainly clear skies.
Conditions will get a little stormy through the end of the work week. A cold front will be approaching the region Friday and will gradually pass through and somewhat stall this weekend. Friday will start off dry with some sunshine before the clouds begin to roll in. A shower is possible before noon, however, the activity will mainly occur during the evening and overnight. Some severe thunderstorms will especially be possible for the northwestern counties. Some storms will be capable of producing isolated damaging winds.
As the front lingers this weekend, the chance for showers and some thunderstorms will continue and it will feel quite cool. Temperatures will be in the low 70s Saturday and Sunday and dewpoints will be in the 50s making it feel comfortable and cool.
