Saturday AM Forecast: Capital City Cat Fight is HERE some showers in the forecast
Today & Tonight: Today is the day! The Capital City Cat Fight is happening now and weather will be cooperative at times. Waking up this morning to some areas with dense patchy fog. Fog will begin to lift as the sun comes out. Temperatures will remain comfortable in the 70s for most of the morning. Daytime highs will reach the mid-to-upper 80s this afternoon. Expecting mostly sunny skies this morning in your forecast, but some clouds will begin to build into the area during the afternoon hours. Showers and storms are possible today. Not expecting a total washout but with thousands of people planning to be outdoors tailgating, be sure you have a way of getting information. Showers will develop and move out of the area quickly, however gusty winds, frequent lightning, and heavy downpours are possible. By the time we get to kick off showers should be well out of the area but the clouds will stick around into the overnight hours.
Up Next: Sunday-Funday! We will finally begin to transition into a new weather pattern… and this one I guarantee you will like! Waking up Sunday morning expect more of the same low-70 temperatures with mostly sunny skies. A cold front approaching the area will bring in northerly winds and some much needed drier air into the area. Forecast highs will top out near 90°. Sunday will be a drier day but isolated showers are still possible. Overnight once the front passes, we will be waking up to a cooler drier start for your Monday. For the work week the new pattern stays locked in. Temperatures will max out in the upper-80s low-90s throughout the week. Plenty of sunshine and dry time is expected for the workweek.
