EVENING: Cloudy, temps in the 30s.
TONIGHT: Mostly cloudy. Low 35.
FRIDAY: Mostly Cloudy and milder. High 48.
Wrapping up another chilly day with just a little sunshine earlier this afternoon. We remain cloudy overnight with temperatures holding steady near 35 degrees.
Friday continues cloudy and we will be milder in the afternoon. Some backyards will be close to 50 degrees by the afternoon.
The start of the weekend will be active with a steady southerly breeze pushing record warmth and showers into the area. While most of the day will be dry and could even feature a few peeks of sunshine ahead of the front, it will be warm! Highs will be in the mid-60s! The record high for Saturday is 63° set all the way back in 1897! That should be broken this time around. A line of gusty evening showers will push through after sunset with the front, amounting to just under a quarter-inch of rain. Winds will pick up on Saturday and likely stay healthy through Saturday night and Sunday. Sunday will be dry and breezy as the front exits.
Looking ahead to next week, the pattern shows a sunny, mild, and quiet stretch. This will likely be the warmest stretch of weather for the month. These conditions will also put this December in the top 10 warmest Decembers on record. Our chances for a White Christmas is waning fast.
