Feeling a lot like spring over the next several days….If you’ve been waiting for a significant warm up, then get ready! We’re tracking highs in the 70s this week, all courtesy of high pressure offshore. Southerly breezes will boost our highs into the lower 60s on Monday. We’ll see mostly sunny skies. A few high clouds will build in by late afternoon into the evening, but overall, we’re expecting a dry day. The clouds may stick around into early Tuesday morning. Otherwise, expect mostly sunny skies with highs in the low and mid 70s. High will soar into the mid and upper 70s on Wednesday and Thursday.  Then, by next weekend, a few showers return to the forecast. Highs will cool back into the 60s.

Tonight: Mostly Clear and Cold. Overnight low temperatures in the low and mid 30s. Winds: SE 5-10 mph.

Monday: Mostly Sunny and Warmer. Increasing Clouds by PM. High temperatures in the low to mid 60s. Winds: SW 5-15 mph.

Tuesday: A Few Morning Clouds. Then, mostly sunny. Warmer. High temperatures in the mid 70s. Winds: SW 5-10 mph.
