TODAY: More sunshine on Monday, should allow for an overall warmer day compared to Sunday. Spotty shower and storm activity kept some in the upper 80s Sunday afternoon. Expect low-to-mid 90s this afternoon under mostly sunny skies. Columbia will be near record territory for today, with 94 the number to beat, set back in 2000. Winds are generally out of the south, but may become more southwesterly at times, in the 5-10 mph range.
TONIGHT: Clear skies stick around overnight, but temperatures remain warm. Temperatures drop into the low 70s by early Tuesday morning, with a light southwest breeze.
EXTENDED: Sunshine continues, and southwest winds pick up a bit, into the 10-15 mph range, and we'll feel temperatures climb into the middle to high 90s. Both days, the humidity should be relatively manageable, with feels like temperatures remaining in the 90s. On Wednesday, a cold front approaches, bringing cloud cover, and a slim chance for evening showers. This is only enough to keep highs stunted in the high 80s on Wednesday, but the cold front passage overnight into Thursday replaces our air mass with a cooler one. Thursday, after a slight chance for early showers, cooler and drier air moves in. Expect a high in the 70s. Another round of showers is possible Friday evening into Saturday morning, but it's another slim chance. Temperatures on Friday are in the 70s, climbing into the 80s by Saturday afternoon. Another chance for rain returns on Sunday as a cold front clears rain to the south. Timing of the front will play a big role in how much rain we see on Sunday before it pushes south, so stay tuned to the forecast for any plans this weekend.
