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.
