Weather Summary:

 

     Frost season will wrap up with another mild night as a weak weather system brings mostly cloudy weather and some spotty light showers.  More clearing is likely tomorrow night so the usually cooler locations will drop into the 40’s.  High pressure will bring us warmer weather Friday and Saturday with gusty winds and cooler daytime temperatures on Sunday.  Have a great Summer!    Erik
