Summertime in autumn

Although today is officially the second day of autumn, it will feel more like summer, with temperatures in the 80s (°F) for the next two days. A warm front associated with a low pressure system currently located west of the Great Lakes will bring warm air from our south today, making it feel more like late August than late September. High temperatures will continue through the end of tomorrow afternoon, after which a cold front will pass through, knocking temperatures back down to more seasonable levels in time for Sunday and the beginning of next week.

The frontal passages will bring a slight chance of showers over the next couple days, but any rain should be light and brief. Hot weather with periods of sun and clouds along with moderate winds should make this weekend a good one for outdoor activities. Enjoy the nice weather while it lasts!
