A chilly start but a mild finish to the weekend….We’re expecting quite a chilly start to the weekend. Morning temperatures on Saturday will be in the upper 20s and lower 30s. By afternoon, highs will only rise into the mid 40s. But on Sunday, we’ll see a nice warm up.  West-southwest winds will help boost our high temperatures into the lower 60s. The best part of the weekend forecast, though, is that we’re not expecting any rain! We’ll see plenty of sunshine on both Saturday and Sunday.  On Monday and Tuesday, highs will be in the mid and upper 60s. We’ll likely be near 70 on Wednesday, just in time for showers and thunderstorms to move in. Rain will linger into Thursday. Then, highs will cool back into the mid 40s by the end of next week.

Friday Night: Mostly Clear and Cold. Low temperatures in the upper 20s and lower 30s. Winds: NW 5-10 mph.

Saturday: Mostly Sunny and Chilly. High temperatures in the mid 40s. Winds: NW/SW 5-10 mph.

Sunday: Mostly Sunny and Mild. High temperatures in the lower 60s. Winds: SW 5-15 mph.
