Today's Forecast Image
  • 72°
  • 46°

Sunny and breezy conditions can be expected today with highs reaching the low 70s, about 15 degrees above average! A moisture-starved cold front will pass through overnight, doing nothing more than shifting winds to the west. This west wind will shift back to the SW on Thursday in response to a warm front, allowing afternoon highs to rebound to near 70° again. Friday will be the warmest day of the week, with highs hitting the mid 70s!

While clouds will thicken on Saturday ahead of an approaching cold front, temps will still reach the unseasonably mild low 70s. A few showers are possible later Saturday, with more developing at night, then ending Sunday morning. Right now, it looks like .25" to .50" is possible. Highs will return to the low 60s on Sunday behind the front. 

The first half of next week looks cooler and somewhat unsettled with the coldest air of the season arriving Tuesday night. A first frost for many, perhaps.
