Our early cold snap is over and we have a nice warming trend on the way!

Our winds have shifted to the Southwest, pumping in much milder weather.

Expect plenty of sunshine on Wednesday with high temperatures in the mid 70s.

It gets even warmer on Thursday. Some of us may even hit the 80° mark! We will see a few more clouds ahead of a cold front on Thursday. But that front won't have much moisture to work with, so we expect dry weather as it moves through. Before gets here we will top out in the mid-to-upper 70s and lower 80s.

Behind the cold front don't expect a drastic drop in temperatures. We will see highs on Friday and Saturday in the mid-to-upper 60s and lower 70s with plenty of sunshine.

The rest of the week is looking dry, with a chance for some wet weather by next Tuesday.
