Cold start but warming up… Temperatures will start near the freezing point again this morning. We will still have some wind but not as strong as yesterday so not as much of a wind chill. Highs will warm into the mid 50s this afternoon with plenty of sunshine. Highs will return to the 50s on Friday with clouds building in as an area of low pressure moves up the coast.

Our next chance for rain moves in Friday evening and will linger into early Saturday morning. Highs will reach to near 60 on Saturday before another big cool down. We are watching a second area of low pressure that could bring in for showers for Sunday with highs in the mid 40s. Highs slip into the 30s to start next week.

Today: Mostly Sunny, Warmer, Breezy. Highs in the mid 50s. Winds: SW 5-15

Tonight: A Few Clouds. Lows in the mid 30s. Winds: SW 5-10

Tomorrow: Partly Cloudy, PM Rain(60%). Highs in the upper 50s. Winds: SW/SE 5-10
