John’s Friday Afternoon Forecast


Warmer temperatures return today and the warm up continues into the weekend. Afternoon highs will return to near normal today, then soar 5° – 15° above normal over the weekend. Expect plenty of sunshine for the weekend as well with much less wind. It’s going to be a great weekend to be outside!

Winds slowly return early next week. Combined with warm temperatures and dry conditions, fire weather concerns will elevate into the middle of next week. These winds precede a storm system that approaches for late next week.

Models are not in very good agreement on timing for this system. One model has the storm moving in Thursday, but clearing out by the weekend. The other has the storm moving slower with more widespread shower activity through the weekend. One thing does look certain: the end of next week will be active to some extent. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
