Thank you again Ann Strober for the great sunset view from the BRP at Raven’s Roost. We’ve been highlighting lots of nice sunsets over the past few days, and this is another really great one, but with a few clouds on the horizon from an approaching cold front that’s moved through the area.

Most people missed the showers yesterday as they were confined to southern portions and to the NW. Some light rain fell but not enough to even measure. The bigger story, cool northerly winds that blew in overnight that will keep temps feeling like a prelude to fall today.

The cold front that moved through works back as a warm front over the next day combining with what’s left over from Tropical Storm Fay to increase chances for rain from Wednesday into the first half of the holiday weekend.

Temperatures stay in the mid to upper 70’s until the weekend when we get back into the lower 80’s.
