The First Warning Storm Team is tracking roller coaster temperatures over the next 7 days. Hold on!

Skies will clear out tonight as high pressure continues to move in. It will still be a little on the breezy side as we head into this evening, with winds diminishing and switching to the southwest overnight. Lows tonight on the chilly side, in the upper 20s to near 30.

High pressure will move offshore on Saturday. Clouds and sunshine will be on tap. Winds will pick up out of the southwest around 10-15 mph. Highs will warm to near 50, so seasonable for this time of year. Looks like we’ll see dry conditions as we ring in the New Year with lows in the upper 30s to lower 40s.

Clouds and sun to start 2017 with chances for rain by the afternoon. Giving it a 25% chance. Better chances for rain heading into the beginning of the workweek, but temperatures will be warming up. Highs in the low to mid 60s Monday. We could see temperatures reach the 70 degree mark on Tuesday, but with that, comes chances for rain. We’ll continue to see chances for rain Wednesday, with much colder air building in for Thursday and Friday.
