High pressure remains dominant in the area, and will keep the sunshine hanging around through the afternoon. After a very chilly start this morning, temperatures this afternoon will rebound fairly nicely with highs managing to reach the upper 60s and potentially low 70s. A light wind with the high in the vicinity will make for a pleasant day overall. Tonight, skies remain clear, and will bring another chilly night our way with lows dipping to the low 40s and some upper 30s once again.

The high will slowly move eastward into Thursday, eventually putting us in southerly flow, but not before another chilly start in the morning. The afternoon will quickly warm as breezes increase and with more sunshine around we look to climb well into the 70s with a few spots possibly hitting 80. The next cold front will then be pushing down from the northwest, increasing clouds at night and into Friday, and also bringing our next chances for some showers. There are differences in the forecast models with respect to coverage, so we will see what we end up with, but it should end up being a cooler day with highs falling back to the lower 70s. A few showers may linger into at least part of Saturday, but those chances remain low at this time. The majority of the weekend looks dry overall with pleasant highs right around 70. The upper level pattern then hints at another potential warm up going into next week with dry weather continuing and more highs in the 70s.
