Cool today but a big warm up is on the way….The roller coaster ride of temperatures we’ve seen over the past several days continues. In fact, we’re going from highs in the 60s to the 80s!

As we move through our Tuesday night, expect partly to mostly cloudy skies. Areas of patchy fog may develop late tonight into early Friday morning. Lows will be in the lower 50s.

On Wednesday, as our winds turn from the southwest, we’ll start warming things up. Temperatures will rise into the mid 70s Wednesday afternoon under mostly sunny skies. Even warmer weather is expected on Thursday as highs approach the lower 80s. The warm weather won’t last long though. A cold front moves in late Thursday, giving way to a few scattered showers Thursday night into very early Friday morning. Most of Friday will be dry, but our temperatures are going to drop. Highs will settle into the lower 60s by Friday afternoon.

This weekend, we’ll see mostly sunny skies and highs in the mid 60s. Also, don’t forget to set your clocks back one hour before bed Saturday night!

Tonight: Partly Cloudy and Cool. Lows in the low 50s. Winds: SE/SW 5-10 mph.

Wednesday: Sun and Clouds. Warmer. Highs in the mid 70s. Winds: SW 5-10 mph.
