FIRST ALERT WEATHER: Drizzly weather and cooler temps heading into the weekend

(WAFF) -

Get ready for soup and sweater weather! It will be cooler Thursday morning, although only by a couple degrees compared to Wednesday. Skies will be mostly cloudy for the next few days. In addition to the cloud cover, pockets of drizzle or light rain or possible throughout the day. 

Winds should diminish this evening, but won’t die down completely overnight. The clouds continue, and steadier showers should track into the Valley from the east for Friday morning.

Not only will there be a higher chance for steady rain through Friday afternoon, but it will also be even cooler with highs staying in the lower 60s for many. Any steady rain should taper off heading into the evening, but isolated showers are still possible. 

Temperatures will fall into the 50s for Friday evening, so jackets may be necessary if you’ll be out and about at those Friday night football games. 

The dreary weather will continues on Saturday with another drizzly afternoon with mostly cloudy skies. Highs will stay in the 60s once again with a northeast wind around 10-15 mph.

We continue to monitor the progress of Hurricane Joaquin, although the system won’t have a direct impact on our weather, it could still cause some changes to the late weekend forecast in the Valley.
