From sunny and warm to a chance for storms….A cold front is on the way, bringing a few changes to our weather.

As we move through our Tuesday night, expect clear, quiet conditions. Low temperatures will be in the upper 50s.

On Wednesday, highs will climb into the upper 70s to lower 80s ahead of a cold front from the west. As the front drops into the area on Wednesday, clouds will build through the day along with our rain chances. In fact, a few scattered showers and possibly a thunderstorm are possible late afternoon into the evening hours. No severe weather is expected.

Thursday, highs will dip into the mid 60s, right where we should be for highs this time of the year. More 60s are in the forecast for Good Friday. We’ll be back in the 70s and 80s by Easter weekend.

Tonight: Mostly Clear. Breezy. Lows in the upper 50s. Winds: SW 10-15 mph.

Wednesday: Mostly Sunny to Partly Cloudy. PM Showers/Storms (40%). Highs in the upper 70s and lower 80s. Winds: SW/N 5-15 mph.
