The First Warning Storm Team is tracking a cooler end to the workweek.

Breezy conditions overnight with winds out of the northeast. Lows in the upper 60s to lower 70s.

Partly to mostly cloudy skies as we head into Friday. Expect more sunshine in the morning, with increasing clouds in the afternoon. Another chance for isolated showers. Not going to be widespread, so we’re giving it about a 20 percent chance. A little taste of Fall, with highs in the upper 70s. Still going to be on the breezy side with winds out of the east at 10-20 mph.

Back to the 80s this weekend. Expect highs in the low to mid 80s. A mixture of sun and clouds for both Saturday and Sunday. Another cold front is set to move in late Sunday and into Monday, increasing our chances for showers and storms.

Tonight: Mostly Cloudy. Lows near 70. Winds: NE 10-15

Tomorrow: Partly to mostly cloudy, isolated showers (20%), Windy. Highs in the upper 70s. Winds: E 10-20+
