It’s even warmer, with temperatures in the upper 60s to lower 70. It stays breezy too, with gusts as high as 20 to 25 miles per hour. Clouds thicken much later tonight as another system approaches. Showers are possible close to daybreak, with a few rumbles possible too. Lows dip into the middle 40s to near 50 degrees. Thursday brings cooler temperatures and the chance for another round of showers, particularly during the midday hours and the early afternoon. It’s windy, with gusts as high as 35 to 40 miles per hour. Highs reach the middle to upper 50s. Temperatures are even lower come Friday under a mixture of clouds and some limited sunshine. A couple light showers or sprinkles are possible. It’s still windy too. Expect highs in the upper 40s to lower 50s, below average for this time of year.

It should be dry during the morning, but the chance for showers arrives starting around mid to late afternoon. Temperatures are near 60 degrees. It’s another breezy day.
