It will still be a bit breezy with north winds at 5 to 15 mph. Look for just a few clouds tonight with lows falling into the mid 40s.

Thursday will be our coolest day of the week. Expect partly cloudy skies with highs only in the mid 50s. We will fall into the 40s Thursday night. Temperatures will rebound into the 60s for Friday as our next chance for rain moves in. Expect showers and possible storms Friday, mainly for the afternoon and evening. A few showers will linger into early Saturday morning but most of the weekend looks dry. Highs will linger in the mid to upper 60s for the weekend and early next week.
