Posted at 1:01 PM, Oct 28, 2016

Much warmer for the weekend….After a chilly finish to our work week, conditions are warming up for the weekend.

First, as we move through our Friday, expect plenty of sunshine with highs in the mid 60s. Winds will be a bit on the breezy side, from the north-northwest between 5 and 15 mph. Tonight, skies will be clear, allowing our temperatures to drop quickly into the mid 40s.

After a chilly start to our Saturday, high temperatures will warm into the lower 70s by afternoon under mostly sunny skies. By Sunday, highs will soar to near 80 under mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies. A cold front will drop in from the north late Sunday. We’re not expecting much rain from this frontal passage. Instead, we’ll have another drop in temperatures just in time for Halloween. In fact, highs on Monday will be in the mid 60s. Lows Monday night will fall into the mid 50s. High temperatures will climb back into the low and mid 70s through the work week.

This Afternoon: Mostly Sunny. Cool and Breezy. Highs in the mid 60s. Winds: N 5-15 mph.

Tonight: Clear Skies. Lows in the mid 40s. Winds: N/W 5-10 mph.

Saturday: Mostly Sunny and Warmer. Highs in the low 70s. Winds: SW 5-10 mph.
