Highs tomorrow will warm into the mid 60s. We will climb back into the 70s for the end of the work week with a mix of sun a clouds for Thursday and Friday.

We are tracking another cold front for Saturday that will bring us a better chance for rain. Thunderstorms are also possible as the front pushes through. Temperatures will drop behind the cold front. Expect highs near 70 on Saturday and 50s on Sunday.
