Sunshine will continue for Thursday with just a few clouds mixing in as a cold front quickly moves through. This front will not be a rain maker for us but will bring in cooler air. Highs will reach the upper 50s tomorrow and will fall into the upper 40s for Friday.

Highs will warm into the mid 50s for the weekend but with more clouds and a few showers. Expect mostly cloudy skies on Saturday with scattered rain showers. An isolated shower is possible Sunday with some sunshine mixing in. Highs will warm into the 60s to start next week.
