Daily Weather Briefing for Tuesday, June 11, 2019





The county commissioners will be meeting tonight for their regular meeting for June 2019. A copy of the agenda packet has been added here for your convenience.





Outlook

A cold front will move to coast this morning. Drier air will briefly spill into the region from the northwest today before low pressure develops along the stalled boundary and brings moisture back from the east tomorrow (Wednesday). Another front will cross the area on Thursday, ushering in dry high pressure for the start of the weekend.
