Tracking showers and storms today, then sunshine on Sunday….Don’t put away your umbrella just yet. We are tracking a few more showers and thunderstorms this afternoon and evening. But first, as we go through most of the morning and afternoon, we’ll see mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies. High temperatures will climb into the upper 70s and lower 80s. Later this afternoon and evening, a cold front will move in from the northwest. That front will push scattered showers and thunderstorms into the area. Some heavy rain is possible, along with gusty winds. Skies will clear tonight with overnight lows in the 50s.

With the front offshore and high pressure building in on Sunday, we’re expecting a lot of sunshine. High temperatures, though, won’t be quite as warm as today. We’ll see highs in the upper 60s and lower 70s on Sunday.  The 60s will stick around into Monday. Then, we’ll see a nice warm up through the end of the week with highs in the 70s. Showers and storms are also in the forecast.

Today: Mostly Sunny to Partly Cloudy. PM Showers and Storms (40%). High temperatures in the upper 70s and lower 80s. Winds: W/SW 10-15 mph.

Tonight: Partly Cloudy. Isolated Shower (20%). Low temperatures in the low and mid 50s. Winds: NW 10-15 mph.

Tomorrow: Mostly Sunny. A Little Cooler. High temperatures in the upper 60s and lower 70s. Winds: W 10-15 mph.
