Local Alert Weather Forecast, Mon., Aug. 29, 2016 

Good Monday Morning, Everyone...

Just enough high pressure remains over the region to give us another sunny, warm day, but those looking for a break in the heat will find relief in the forecast. Under sunny skies today's highs will reach the low90's and NW breezes will pick up to 10-15 mph.

Skies will stay mostly clear tonight. Lows will be in the upper 40's to low 50's with light SW breezes.

A few clouds in the sky tonight will be the first marker of change. The cool down begins tomorrow and it will last to the end of the week. With an increased cloud cover will come a chance of scattered showers beginning Wednesday that are likely to stay with us through Friday. Next weekend will see temps in the mid 70’s under partly cloudy skies. the NewsChannel 21 Weather Center, I'm Bob Shaw...
