We start off sunny Thursday with highs around 80. Clouds roll in by afternoon with a slight chance for showers and thunderstorms. Better chances arrive Friday afternoon as a cold front approaches the area. A storm or two could pose a risk for isolated strong gusty winds. Any storms that develop will be capable of producing locally heavy rainfall and frequent lightning but the overall severe threat appears low. A few light showers may linger Saturday morning as the cold front clears the area. Then we get a break from the wet conditions. A pattern change with persistent high pressure will keep the region dry through at least the middle of next week. High temperatures behind the front will reach the lower to middle 70s on Saturday, warming to the lower to middle 80s early next week.

A Thought: You know, I’m realizing over and over that this life has much more to offer than the average eye will ever see. If you look at life through a big scope lens, it’s easier to see what life could be as opposed to what it is right now. You must give everything to make your life as beautiful as the dreams that dance in your imagination. Happiness is a risk. If you’re not a little scared, then you’re not doing it right. Care no more for the opinion of others … Do the hardest thing on earth for you… act for yourself. Face the truth. Sometimes truth hurts. Maybe not as much as jumping on a bicycle with a seat missing, but it hurts. One thing I can say for sure, all my problems bow before my stubbornness and God’s truth.
