The rain moves out and the sunshine moves back in….Some of us saw quite a soaker earlier today, but as we move through the next several days, we’re tracking drier weather and warm temperatures.

But first, as we move through our Tuesday evening, a few scattered showers or storms are possible. Otherwise, as we move through the night, expect partly cloudy skies. Overnight low temperatures will be in the mid 60s.

High pressure builds over the area for Wednesday and Thursday, giving way to mainly dry weather through the end of the work week. In fact, on Wednesday and Thursday, expect mostly sunny skies with highs in the upper 70s and lower 80s. By Friday, we’ll see partly cloudy skies. There is a slim chance of a shower late in the day. Highs will be in the lower 80s.

By the weekend, we’re tracking partly cloudy skies. A few late day showers and storms are possible Saturday. The entire weekend will not be a washout.  High temperatures will be in the mid and upper 80s this weekend.

Tonight: Partly Cloudy. Stray Shower/Storm Early (20%). Low temperatures in the mid 60s. Winds: NW 5-10 mph.

Wednesday: Mostly Sunny and Warm. High temperatures in the upper 70s and lower 80s. Winds: NW 10-15 mph.
