A beautiful Friday PM with temperatrues well into the 70s. Take time to enjoy, as it won't stick around.

Friday: Mostly Sunny; Breezy & Unseasonably Warm

Highs: Mid-Upper 70s | Wind: SW 10-15 To W 15-20 Gusts 30

Overnight: Partly To Mostly Cloudy; Stray Shower

Lows: 45-49 | Wind: NW 5-10

Saturday: Clouds Giving Way To Sun; Much Cooler

Highs: 55-60 | Wind: NW 10-15 Gusts 20-25

An approaching cold front from the west in combination with high pressure positioned to our south will result in an unseasonably warm day with high temperatures soaring into the mid-70s under mostly sunny skies. Additionally, winds will be a bit breezy and gusty at times throughout the day.

The aforementioned cold front will push through the region late today into the overnight. Moisture appears to be limited with this system however I can't rule out a few stray showers during the overnight.

A new area of high pressure will build in for the weekend and while it will be noticeably cooler temperatures should run at or just around normal in the mid-50s.

Any lingering clouds early Saturday will give way to mostly sunny skies making for a pleasant yet cooler day. Similar conditions are expected for the second half of the weekend which will feature sunny to partly cloudy skies.

A warm front will push in Monday producing mostly cloudy skies and a chance of a few showers to begin the week. An isolated shower may even be possible Tuesday as a weak front swings though.

The unsettled pattern continues into mid-week as another fast moving low heads in our direction bringing with it the possibility of more shower activity. Enjoy the nice weather today and have a great weekend!
