Rowan weather: Welcome to fall

Happy fall, y’all.

It looks like we might be easing out of the high temperatures that beat us down all summer long, but it won’t be anything like cool for a while.

A shower this morning was part of the 30 percent chance of scattered showers today. It will be mostly cloudy again, with a high near 80. Winds will come from the north northeast at 7-10 mph. Less than a tenth of an inch of rain is expected.

Tonight has just a 20 percent chance of showers, and will be mostly cloudy with a low of 65. Winds will be northeast at 6 mph.

Then Friday through Monday, there’s no mention of rain at all.

Friday will be partly sunny and 84, with north northeast wind around 7 mph. The low will be 62, with calm wind.

Saturday will be sunny and quite warm, with a high of 88. Winds will be light. The low will 64.

Sunday will be mostly sunny and 83, with a low of 60.

Monday drops down to 76 for a high, with a low of 60 again.

Then the old, familiar 30 percent chance of rain returns Tuesday, but skies will be partly sunny and we’ll see a high of 78. The same chance of rain hangs around for Tuesday night, with another low of 60.

Wednesday will be partly sunny and 80.
