Friday, Another warm day in store with afternoon highs expected to return to the mid 80s, unlikely to break records as the record for Friday is 88 degrees with a forecasted high of 85. Increased moisture moving from the southwest will generate the chance for a isolated shower across the region. Most the region will stay dry however.

This weekend, a weak cold front will help to start cooler off the area with afternoon highs in the 70s. The next cold front expected late on Sunday night will be a bit stronger and pull down the high temperatures a bit closer to were we should be for early December.
