Autumn officially begins at 4:44 p.m. EDT on September 22nd and we are going to get a preview this weekend!

The forecast may end up a bit cooler than we are forecasting. This is our first Autumn like system for the season, which will impact a good third of the U.S. The front will only bring a few passing light showers here on your Friday morning. The remainder of the day, we'll see a line of scattered showers or a few storms in our extreme southern counties. Saturday morning we could see reading drop into the upper 50s to lower 60s. This will be the case for Sunday morning too. Enjoy!

Track our weekend readings here with our Futurecast Models.

FRIDAY:  Chance of showers early then a few storms later in the day, mainly south of Columbus. Winds will pick up from the north 5-15, with gusts to 20. High: 90.

    Heat and humidity continue

    The bulk of the rain has been well to our west today and will stay that way for the duration of tonight and tomorrow. We'll only see an isolated shower or storm the next few days due to most of the tropical moisture lifting well north of us. That's all due to an area of low pressure in the upper Midwest that is sucking it all north. This will leave us on the warm and humid side of things, which is why isolated showers and storms are in the forecast the next few days.
