Rowan weather: Temperatures going down Friday

Again, it’s going to be a hot one, with sunny skies and a high of 88. It’s also a Code Yellow air quality day, which will affect sensitive groups.

North northwest wind will blow around 5 mph this afternoon. That wind will usher in dry and cooler weather, with a low tonight of 61 and more north northeast wind around 6 mph.

Friday will be mostly sunny and 77, with northeast wind at 6 mph calming in the afternoon. The low will be 56, with light and variable wind.

We’ll have nice weather at least through Wednesday.

Saturday will be sunny and 74 with north northeast wind at 5-9 mph. A mostly clear night will have a low of 50.

Sunday will be sunny and 71, with another clear night and another low of 50.

Monday will be mostly sunny and 74, with a low of 54 and partly cloudy skies.

Tuesday will be mostly sunny and 76, with a low of 56.

And Wednesday should be mostly sunny and 78.

The one thing we need now is a little rain — conditions are very dry heading into fall.
