      Another very warm day and for first time since early last September 2 85 days in a row.{} A backdoor cool front has dropped our temperatures into the 50s now and with more stable air over us, the risk for morning thunder is diminishing.{} But a "front door" cold front moving through the Midwest will sweep across the area tomorrow and bring rain and possibly even some morning thunderstorms with it.{} Our hyperlocal futurecast for 9AM shows moderate rain in the metro area.{}

      Drier air comes in by late in the afternoon and high pressure and some delightful air over us for the weekend . . . even if{}the rain washes away many of the cherry blossoms.
