Weekend Outlook
Weekend Outlook(WHNS)

Saturday offers up a repeat of Friday, with more sun, low humidity, and pleasantly warm highs in the low to mid 80s. It’s Sunday where things take a turn. The first half of the day sees a mix of sun and clouds, but a new storm system sweeping in from the west brings scattered showers and thunderstorms back to the region late morning and into the afternoon. Severe weather is not expected, but lightning and gusty winds could still prove dangerous for outdoor plans. Get your activities in early to avoid running into any storms! Highs Sunday remain in the low to mid 80s.

Occasional rain and thunderstorms continue on Monday as a cold front sweeps across the region. On a more positive note, the southerly winds produced by this system as it sweeps across the eastern U.S. should help to clear out the wildfire smoke for at least a few days.
