It’s warming up just in time for the weekend….If you’ve been waiting for some warmer weather, it’s on the way just in time for the weekend.  As we move through our Saturday, expect high temperatures in the mid 60s under a mix of sun and clouds. It will likely be breezy from time to time, with winds from the southwest between 10 and 20 mph. On Sunday, it will be another mild one, with high temperatures in the mid and upper 60s. A couple of spots could even see highs near 70.  We’ll likely start the day with a bit of sun, but by afternoon, clouds will increase and thicken, ahead of our next weather maker.

A front will move into the area from the west-northwest and stall, allowing waves of rain to move in. In fact, rain chances will be going up for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Some rain could even stick around for Thursday.  And with all the clouds and rain around, high temperatures will fall back into the 40s and 50s next week.

Friday Night: Partly Cloudy and Cold. Low temperatures in the mid and upper 30s. Winds: SW 10-15 mph.

Saturday: Sun and Clouds. Warmer. Breezy at times. High temperatures in the mid 60s. Winds: SW 10-20 mph.

Sunday: Increasing Clouds. Isolated Late Day Shower (20%). A Little Warmer. High temperatures in the mid 60s. Winds: SW 5-10 mph.
