Definitely the best day of the event weekend when talking about the weather. We'll have sunny skies throughout the day today with cool temperatures for late August. Afternoon highs will warm up in the upper 60s after temperatures will be starting off at 50 degrees at 7:00AM. No rain for today, and winds will start off out of the north at 5-10 MPH and shift out of the east by the early afternoon hours.
There will be a warm front approaching from the west during the day that will bring an increase of clouds to the area, along with slightly warmer temperatures. It will still be rather cool at 7:00 AM with temperatures starting off in the lower 50s, but afternoon highs will make it to near 70 degrees. Winds will be out of the east at 5-10 MPH to start with, but will shift out of the southeast by the afternoon hours. With the shift in the wind direction, this could bring an isolated shower or two to the area, but with a dry airmass at the surface, you may not see much rain at all. Rain chance will only be at 20% for the late afternoon hours.
The warm front will have moved through the area and a center of low pressure will be approaching the state from the west. Along with that, an upper level trough will move into the state from the north allowing that low to deepen. This will increase the chance of showers and thunderstorms throughout the day, especially the early morning through the early afternoon hours. Skies will be cloudy throughout the day, and afternoon highs will be in the upper 60s. The best chance of rain will be during the 1:00 AM - 11:00 AM time frame, with scattered showers possible after that. The chance of rain during event times will be at 50%.
