EVENING: Clear, breezy and warm. Temps in the 70s.

TONIGHT: Warm and breezy. Low 58.

THURSDAY: Sunny, near record warm. High 85.

Wednesday marks the first day we warmed into the 80s this year! It also starts a 3 day streak of high temperatures that are 20 degrees warmer than the average high. We could also challenge the record high on Thursday with a forecast high of 85. The record is 85 in 1977.

Friday’s high will also top near 85 degrees with clouds increasing toward evening. More clouds arrive Saturday with stray showers possible. Most model guidance suggests Saturday’s rain remains less than a tenth of an inch, allowing most of the day to be outdoors.

Sunday will be mostly cloudy with more showers arriving after sunset. This is when we have a better chance of a quarter inch of rain or more in most areas. We start off the week chilly before bouncing back to seasonable levels by next Wednesday.
