EVENING: Mild and breezy with scattered light rain showers. Temps in the 50s.

TONIGHT: Clearing skies and breezy, low 40. Northwest winds 5-15mph.

FRIDAY: Partly cloudy, breezy. High 48. Northwest winds 5-15mph.

Light showers are returning this evening, but only for a brief time. We remain mild through the evening hours until the front exits and skies clear later tonight. Northwest winds 5-15mph will send temps into the mid 30s by Friday morning.

Friday will be breezy, dry and more seasonable with afternoon temperatures in the 40s. The weekend remains dry and generally quiet.

For next week things a little more active with heavier precipitation chances. Monday starts warm and breezy with highs reaching the mid 50s before rain arrives Monday afternoon and evening. Windy and colder conditions follow behind the front for Tuesday. This cold air could set the stage for some wintry mix on Wednesday, however, this could also be a cold rain for many of us. We are on the southern edge of the cold air, so its a tough call right now. At this time I would favor more of a cold soaking rain. We’ll be watching it closely and keep you posted.
