Warm days are ahead for Aurora, but nothing like the heat that affected the area last month. It is starting to look like rain could affect the area Friday night into Saturday.
Prospects for thunderstorms are decreasing this evening. The energy was there with more moisture, but atmospheric winds were lacking. A few areas could still see an isolated shower or thunderstorm as a cold front pushes through this evening.
High pressure and clear skies will move in behind the front, so temperatures should dip to around 60 degrees tonight. The National Weather Service shows it was 83 degrees Wednesday. Temperatures should rise back into the middle 80’s tomorrow with ample sunshine, but dewpoints will dry into the upper 50’s to lower 60’s, making Thursday a more comfortable day.
Temperatures may reach the upper 80’s in places Friday with dewpoints creeping up through the 60’s. This will occur as winds turn southwest ahead of the next cold front. Upper level disturbances will continue to pinwheel through the area from time to time around a large upper low in Canada, keeping the main heat core back west.
Details are murky at best, but it looks as though one of these upper level waves and surface cold fronts will produce some rain later Friday into Saturday across parts of the area. A more in depth weekend forecast will be provided as details become clear.
