WEATHER-WXWALL


WARMER TOMORROW

Clear skies and chilly temperatures are on the way tonight. Winds will continue from the northeast at 10 - 15 this evening and as temperatures drop to the lower 50's tonight, it will be another evening for a sweater or light jacket. Thursday's weather looks fine and we expect mostly sunny skies all day. Winds will gradually turn around to a more southeasterly direction and that should help us warm up to 80 degrees in the afternoon. It looks like it will not be quite as windy tomorrow; however, wind speeds will be around 10 - 15 and a little gusty during the day.

As we continue to look at a changing weekend forecast, it still looks like we will be tracking rain showers as soon as Friday evening. Skies will cloud-up during the day on Friday and showers will move in before sunset. The unsettled weather will bring showers on Saturday and, possibly, again on Sunday morning. Some of the latest computer guidance suggests that the rain may taper off by Sunday afternoon.so it's possible that the end of the weekend might turn out to be rain-free.
