LEO IN CHROMAKEY

LEO IN CHROMAKEY

< Webb in for Leo. As a cold front works
across the area today, we'll see partly
sunny skies and still a slight chance
of an isolated shower or storm. By this
afternoon, most of the rain chances
will be completely gone, with the
exception of Southside - which will be

closer to the departing boundary. It'll
still feel rather warm this afternoon
with highs in the lower to mid 90s.
Breezy at times. Skies will become
mostly clear overnight with cooler and
comfortable air. Lows should fall the
around the mid 60s. The weekend will be
enjoyable with lower humidity and a
fair amount of sunshine. There may be a
shower or storm late Sunday, but
there's a better chance Monday as a
warm front returns to the north. Get
your complete forecast at wdbj7.com

FRIDAY: Isolated shower early. Partly
sunny. Not as hot. High: 95

FRIDAY NIGHT: Clear skies and
comfortable. Low: 63
