A cold front passed through the area today with little fanfare. Upper level low pressure will linger behind the front keeping the chance of scattered showers in the forecast. Showers may well continue at times tomorrow morning and again during the afternoon. In fact, scattered showers are possible into Saturday morning.

But as the low moves farther away from the region, skies may clear Saturday afternoon. Warmer temperatures and higher humidity levels will return. We will see the same weather pattern returning next week we have seen so many times this summer---partly cloudy, hot and humid with scattered showers and thunderstorms.
