Warmer, then much colder….Buckle up! We’re in for another temperature roller coaster ride over the next several days. We’re also tracking some rain.  But as we move through our Thursday, we’re expecting highs in the mid 50s under mostly sunny skies. Clouds will increase and thicken on Friday, in advance of our next weather system that moves in from the southwest. It’s an area of low pressure, which will spread rain our way late Friday into early Saturday morning. Highs will be in the mid 50s. Drier weather moves in by Saturday afternoon, with highs near 60. Then, we’ll start seeing our high temperatures take a big dip by Sunday through next week. In fact, highs will be in the upper 30s Monday and Tuesday.

Tonight: A Few Clouds. Cold. Low temperatures in the mid and upper 20s. Winds: SW 5-10.

Thursday: Mostly Sunny and Mild. High temperatures in the middle 50s. Winds: SW 10-15 mph.

Friday: Increasing Clouds. Chance of Showers (50%). High temperatures in the mid 50s. Winds: SW 5-15 mph.
