Tracking sunny, cooler weather….If you’ve enjoyed the sunshine over the past couple of days, we have more sun ahead in your forecast. However, it will come with a trade off, in the form of colder temperatures.

But first, as we move through this Wednesday night, temperatures will drop into the low and mid 30s under partly cloudy skies. On Thursday, hold on to your hats! We’ll have another push of colder air moving in, all courtesy of gusty northerly winds between 10 and 20 mph. So, high temperatures will rise into the lower 40s, but because of the winds, it will feel like the 20s and 30s during the day. We’ll see plenty of sunshine Thursday as well as on Friday. Highs will climb into the upper 40s and lower 50s by Friday afternoon.

Then, by the weekend, our temperatures are going up! We’re expecting highs in the low to mid 60s Saturday and Sunday. The forecast is also looking dry by then. But by next week, the rain returns through the middle of next week.

Tonight: Partly Cloudy and Cold. Low temperatures in the low to mid 30s. Winds: N 5-10 mph.,

Thursday: Mostly Sunny. Cold and Windy. High temperatures in the low 40s. Winds: N 10-20 mph.

Friday: Sun and Clouds. A Chilly Day. High temperatures in the upper 40s and lower 50s. Winds: S 5-15 mph.
