Temperatures will warm into the 80s today. Winds will be out of the south and southwest, which will bring in some warmer air. Looks like we’ll get a taste of summer with highs in the 80s for the next 7 days. High pressure will keep us dry through Saturday.

Another warm day on tap for Friday. Highs will warm to the low 80s once again. A little more cloud cover for Saturday, but for the most part, conditions are looking dry. A cold front will move in from the west late Saturday and Sunday.

We will be watching the front as well as any remnant moisture from Tropical Depression Sixteen. It’s still too early to tell the exact track, but keeping rain chances in for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

We’ll see drier weather once the front and potential tropical moisture moves through.

Tonight: Partly cloudy. Lows in the 60s. Winds: S around 5 mph.

Tomorrow: Decreasing clouds throughout the day. Highs in the lower 80s. Winds: SW 5-10 mph.

Tomorrow night: Partly cloudy. Lows in the 60s. Winds: S 5-10 mph.
