We're expecting another very quiet and gorgeous weekend but some big changes come later next week. With all the blue sky, we won't see much chance of widespread rain heading into the second week of fall.
There will be a fairly quick drop in temperatures tonight with clearing skies and light south winds. That makes for great high school football weather. Most will be in the middle to upper 40s by early tomorrow morning. Though there will be a few fair-weather clouds tomorrow and many of us will be slightly warmer. The change will be barely noticeable for most, though. Sunday there is the slimmest chance for rain as weak cold air comes in. We could see maybe one or two stray showers, but that's about it.
That cold will knock Monday's highs down 6-12 degrees to a more seasonal level and skies should clear from west to east. Tuesday, warm air will push back north. That strong breeze with bone-dry air will make for very high fire danger. This is especially noteworthy during the harvest.
Tuesday and Wednesday should be very sunny to go along with the breeze. Thursday another stronger cold front moves in. That should drop high temperatures about 20-30 degrees in two days. Some computer models bring in rain with the cool air but we've kept it out for now because of the dryness.
