There are a couple of sprinkles out there right now along with partly to mostly cloudy skies. This is all associated with a strong cold front.  While the front will bring little (if any) rain, it will bring a BIG change in temperatures.   Clearing is expected heading into this evening behind the front with temperatures dropping into the mid 40s to near 50 degrees.

A real taste of fall returns by Friday with highs in the 60s despite lots of sunshine. Lows will be in the 40s by Saturday morning all across the state.

Now what about the all important Labor Day Holiday weekend?

Temperatures will remain below average Saturday and Sunday with highs in the low to mid 70s. Clouds will increase on Saturday with the chance for showers Saturday night into Sunday morning. The afternoon looks drier with some clearing possible.
