Any storms that develop will have the potential to produce heavy rain and strong, damaging winds. We cannot rule out an isolated tornado either. Once the front moves offshore later tonight, the threat for severe weather will diminish, giving way to gradual clearing. High temperatures will be in the lower 70s. Winds will be very breezy today, from the south at 20 to 30 mph, with higher gusts.

On Thursday, while an isolated morning shower is possible, most areas will be dry under a mix of sun and clouds. High temperatures will be in the mid and upper 50s. The winds will continue to be breezy from the west-southwest and 20 to 25 mph. On Friday, we’re expecting mostly sunny skies with highs in the upper 40s. We’ll start the weekend with highs in the 40s, but by Sunday, highs will climb into the upper 50s. We’re expecting plenty of sun through your weekend.
