Forecast Last Updated at Tuesday, August 14, 2018 at 2:48PM
The pleasantries continue through Wednesday as high pressure remains the dominating theme for a change. Expect lots of sunshine and seasonal to seasonally warm temperatures today and tomorrow. We'll dip our toes into the "widely scattered" afternoon shower regime Thursday followed by an increase in coverage Friday and this weekend.

The first three days of this work week are about as quiet as we've experienced in a month. Or at least it feels like a month. High pressure rules the roost with lots of sunshine and seasonably warm temperatures. There's a non-zero threat of an afternoon shower today, but I omitted it from the forecast box.
Moisture begins to pool Thursday ahead of a front that knocks on the door this weekend. The front never makes it hear, but stalls to our north Saturday and Sunday. Therefore showers begin to ramp-up Thursday afternoon followed by increasing coverage Friday and this weekend with the front in the vicinity of the region. It's a pretty typical playbook for August. Clouds and showers will keep temperatures down a notch, more or less in-line with mid August standards.
