Morning cloudiness has broken a bit throughout the day as temperatures rise to highs in the mid-to-upper 80s this afternoon. Though a very isolated shower may pop up this afternoon or evening, coverage should be low enough that the vast majority do not see anything. For the most part, we stay with partly cloudy skies into the evening and we will see mild temperatures with only moderate levels of humidity.

Through Tonight: Evening temperatures falling toward 80 around sunset will be accompanied by partly cloudy skies and just the very slightest risk of a shower. We continue partly cloudy overnight as lows fall to the mid-60s and near 70 in most spots.

Tomorrow (Saturday): Some patchy fog will be possible early on Saturday, otherwise look for mostly sunny skies during the day and probably no precipitation. Highs should top out mainly in the upper 80s to near 90.

Tropics: Things remain ready to come to life in the Atlantic, but not many changes from yesterday and nothing currently threatening the homeland. 40 years ago today, Hurricane Camille, which would eventually lead to mass damage on the coast and flooding in parts of Virginia, had its first advisory issued. And a little more recently, Hurricane Andrew was emerging off the coast of Africa as a tropical wave 17 years ago today. Check back on Monday for a detailed examination of Hurricane Camille and local impacts.

West Springfield received a surprising 0.62" of rain last night...I really didn't think that early evening storm was heavy or big or slow enough to do it, but the radar review from weatherunderground didn't show any additional rain overnight.
