Partly cloudy, cooler Thursday; Sunny Friday


Highs in the low to mid 80s under variably cloudy skies. Temperatures will edge into the mid to upper 40s. We will still see some veiled sunshine through the morning and temperatures return to around 70 in the afternoon under a mostly cloudy sky. A few showers possible Friday afternoon, otherwise mostly sunny and just a touch warmer with highs in the mid to upper 80s.

Saturday looks partly sunny and warmer with temperatures in the mid and upper 70s.

Wednesday night expect fair skies increasing humidity and mild with a low of 69. The rest of the area kept dry conditions Monday night and will likely stay that way. Nothing big - showers should be scattered, and rainfall totals should remain below a tenth of an inch. I expect highs to range from upper 60s to mid 70s.

Extended: After an early morning cold front tomorrow, temperatures Friday will be slightly cooler. Temperatures will rise well into the 70s to near 80 degrees and the southwesterly breeze could gust to 30 miles per hour during the afternoon.

Air Berlin says talks with easyJet continue
While it conducted the negotiations, Air Berlin's planes were kept in the air by a government loan of 150 million euros. Air Berlin said late last month that negotiations with Lufthansa and easyJet would continue until October 12.

We're looking at a far better afternoon than yesterday with sunshine and a few clouds in the mix.

Temperatures may start off in the 80s but fall through the day on Monday into the 70s and on down into the 50s by early Tuesday morning as a real taste of fall arrives.

Thursday: Partly cloudy, cooler and a bit breezy.
