As we move through our Thursday night, expect chilly conditions. We’ll see temperatures in the low to mid 30s under mostly clear skies.

Afternoon highs on Friday will rebound into the mid 60s as our winds shift from the southwest.  It’s going to be breezy Friday, with wind speeds between 10 and 20 mph.  We’ll have wind gusts to 25 mph.  Expect mostly sunny skies to start the day. We’ll see a few more clouds by afternoon.

On Saturday, highs will soar into the mid 70s under partly cloudy skies.  We’ll likely see highs in the lower 70s by Sunday, too.  But by the second half of the day, a few showers will move in with an approaching cold front.  We’ll continue to have rain chances in the forecast Monday and Tuesday. A few thunderstorms are possible as well.
