Just how warm will we end up before the day is done? Thanks to a high pressure system that continues to hold ground to our east, we'll see that same sunshine push temps to near record highs. Today's record high of 83 degrees was set in 1996; and some of the models are showing we will tie that record high. Winds are from the south west at 10-15 mph.
Tonight the moisture builds quickly as the cold front finally makes headway in moving to the lower Mississippi Valley region, bringing rain with it. Our chances of rain will escalate to 50% possibility of showers. Additionally, very breezy conditions are expected as well, winds will power from the south and then shift north at 15-25 mph.
Tomorrow morning the chances of rain stick around in the early morning hours, but not expected to be an all day concern. Highs will be in the lower 60s for today, and the threat of rain will not linger into the weekend.
