From rain and storms to chilly temps, just in time for the weekend….As we move through our Thursday night, a few isolated showers are possible as a cold front settles offshore. Otherwise, expect partly cloudy skies. Overnight low temperatures will dip into the mid 40s. On Friday, most of the day will be dry under a mix of sun and clouds. But late in the day, an area of low pressure will move in from the northwest, giving way to a few isolated showers. Some of the rain will likely stick around into Saturday, but the entire day does not look like a washout. High temperatures will be in the upper 50s and lower 60s on Friday. Then, expect significantly cooler weather for the weekend. It will be windy and cool on Saturday, with highs in the mid 50s. Winds will gust from the west up to 35 and 40 mph. On Sunday, we’ll be even colder, with highs in the upper 40s under mostly sunny skies. Temperatures will warm back into the 70s early next week.

Tonight: Partly Cloudy. Isolated Showers Early (30%). Breezy. Low temperatures in the mid 40s. Winds: W 10-15 mph.

Friday: Partly Cloudy. Isolated Late Day Showers (20%). Breezy and Cool. High temperatures in the upper 50s and lower 60s. Winds: W 10-20 mph.

Saturday: Partly Sunny. Chance of Rain (30%). Windy and Cool. High temperatures in the mid 50s. Winds: W 15-25 mph, gusts to 35-40.
