Meteorologist Sarah Fletcher says the early morning showers and storms have come to an end, moving to the southeast along a cold front Tuesday morning.
We won't get any cooler behind that front this afternoon. Highs will stay in the mid to upper 70s. After starting the day with cloudy skies, it will be mostly sunny by the afternoon. Wind will be out of the north, behind that front, from 5-15 mph.
A ridge in the jetstream will build over the region through the end of the week. This will keep skies clear and keep us warm. Highs will reach the upper 70s Thursday. We'll even reach the low to mid 80s on Friday, keeping us on record watch.
A cold front will push through the state this weekend, dropping us back into the upper 70s on Sunday. We'll stay dry through the start of next week, with highs in the lower 80s for Halloween.
