Near-record warmth continues for Southcentral
While the thermometer didn't climb into record territory today, the actual high was just one degree shy of tying the record of 77 degrees. With high pressure still being the dominant factor in our weather pattern, little change exist over the coming days. Today marked the 38th day of seeing 70-plus degree temperatures and with little sign of slowing down, this summer will be one to remember.
Clouds will slowly stream in tonight, from a weak wave pushing off of the Alaska Range. Despite any passing clouds, we will still see temperatures bottom out in the mid-50s. Thankfully, it's still pleasant weather that will allow us to keep our windows open at night and enjoy the pleasant, smoke-free air.
The 70s will stick around to close out the week and weekend, but a noticeable shift in our weather pattern arrives late this weekend. The high that has been rather persistent the past week will finally begin to break down. This will open the door for a series of storms to push through Southcentral, not only knocking our temperatures down, but bringing rain back to the region.
For now, get outside and enjoy the sunny days and pleasant weather.
Have a great Friday!
