Much cooler weather is on the way for the weekend….Brace yourself.  We’re going on a temperature roller coaster ride over the next several days. On Thursday, high temperatures will warm into the mid 70s, due in part to breezy southwest winds between 10 and 20 mph. However, a cold front will move in during the day, which will be the onset of some changes.  Now, as the front pushes in on Thursday, we will see a few more clouds and possibly a few isolated showers. After the front passes through, we’ll start noticing a difference with our temperatures. On Friday, highs will cool into the mid 60s.  And by Saturday and Sunday, many of us will not get out of the mid and upper 50s by afternoon!  Overnight lows will also dip into the 30s and 40s this weekend.  Mostly sunny skies will take us through the weekend and the start of the work week. A few showers are possible by Wednesday.

Tonight: Mostly Clear and Cool. Low temperatures in the upper40s and lower 50s. Winds: NW/SW 5-10 mph.

Thursday: Clouds and Sun. Isolated PM Showers (20%). High temperatures in the mid 70s. Winds: SW 10-20 mph.

Friday: Mostly Sunny. Mild. High temperatures in the mid 60s. Winds: W 10-15 mph.
