The heat warning has been lifted as we head into a cooler weekend. This morning we will have sunny skies with increased cloud cover as the day goes by. Cross your fingers we get a thunderstorm, not the kind of storm that causes flooding and hail damage, just the kind of storm where it’s fun to watch and we get a nice refreshing rain with a bit of a cool down in the temperature.
The weather this weekend will still be quite nice just not quite as warm. Temperatures in the high teens and low twenties are in the forecast with sunny skies throughout the weekend. A slight chance of showers on Saturday.
Today: Sunny early this morning then a mix of sun and cloud with 60 percent chance of showers this afternoon. Risk of a thunderstorm this afternoon. High 25. UV index 8 or very high.
Tonight: Partly cloudy. 60 percent chance of showers early this evening with risk of a thunderstorm. Fog patches developing overnight. Wind northwest 20 km/h gusting to 40 becoming light near midnight. Low 12.
