A cold front will move in from the northwest tonight.  We may see a few more clouds and possibly a sprinkle or light shower for our northern communities. But most of us will get through the night dry. Areas of fog possible overnight and tomorrow morning. Low temperatures will be in the mid 40s.

High pressure will then build over the region giving us dry conditions for Thursday. Expect plenty of sunshine with highs in the lower 60s. It will be a little on the breezy side. Winds will be out of the north around 10-15 mph. An even milder day on tap for Friday. Expect plenty of sunshine with highs in the upper 30s.

Big changes for the weekend. We’re tracking roller coaster temperatures. Highs on Saturday will be near 70. A strong cold front will cross the region Saturday night and Sunday. A few showers are possible, but the biggest change will be the temperatures. Expect highs in the 50s for Sunday. It will also be windy, with wind gusts up to 30 mph. Heading into next week, temperatures will be in the 50s.
