Tonight: Mainly cloudy with a few evening showers possible. Some patchy mist and fog in spots late. Lows: 56-62. Winds: N/NE 2-10 mph.
Saturday: Morning cloudiness then a mix of sun and clouds with an isolated shower possible. Highs: 74-78 (dew points: 50s). Winds: N/NE.
Saturday Night: Becoming clear, cooler. Some patchy valley fog late. Lows: 50-54. Winds: Light.

Leftover pockets of light rain end this evening and will be followed by a mainly dry overnight. Some mist and fog patches may form late though as well.
We get rid of the gray Saturday as some drier air works in. Morning cloudiness will give way to sunshine by noon tomorrow. With just enough weak upper-level support hanging around still, the sun will mix with afternoon clouds with a pop-up shower possible. Temperatures warm back up into the 70s to near 80 degrees.
As high pressure builds right overhead tomorrow night, skies become clear again and allow for good radational cooling overnight along with areas of late fog. We are getting into the late summer and fall “morning fog season” when cool, calm nights often forms areas of fog because of the cooler air over relatively warm water temperatures on area lakes and rivers. Fog in the river valleys and along lake-shores is the result.
The cool start and any early fog Sunday give way to a beautiful late August day! Skies will be mostly sunny with just some fair weather clouds mixed with the sun. Highs reach the lower 80s with low humidity. Heat continues to gradually build to mid-summer levels next week with near 90 degree highs possible by Wednesday and Thursday.
