Most spots will reach the upper 80s and even break into the 90s by the end of the day. Rain chances still sit at 0%. We are breezy with southwest winds 10-15 gusting to 20 mph at times. Temperatures will only drop into the upper 60s overnight with a clear sky.

Our next chance for rain is set to move in this weekend. A cold front will approach the area on Saturday, bringing in a chance for scattered showers and storms.

High temperatures will drop into the low 80s on Saturday and the mid 70s behind the cold front on Sunday.
