Warmer weather is on the way….The big plunge in temperatures that we’ve experienced over that past few days is behind us, well, at least for a few more days. High temperatures are headed into the 60s. But on Thursday, most of us will see highs in the mid 50s under partly sunny skies. While a stray shower is possible, it will be the exception and not the rule.  By Friday, a lot of us will have highs in the upper 50s and lower 60s under mostly cloudy skies. A couple of isolated showers are possible. This weekend, high temperatures will climb into the mid 60s. Rain chances will be going up late Saturday through Sunday as a weather system from the south moves our way. Then, by next week, our warm up will end. Highs will be in the mid 40s by the middle of the work week.

Tonight: Partly Cloudy and Chilly.  Overnight lows in the upper 30s and lower 40s. Winds: NE 5-10 mph

Thursday: Partly Sunny. Stray Showers (10-20%). Highs in the mid 50s. Winds: NE 10-15 mph

Friday: Mostly Cloudy. Isolated Showers (20%). Highs in the upper 50s and lower 60s. Winds: NE 5-10 mph.
