Here comes the sun and here comes the cold air

This Afternoon: Sunshine but very brisk

Temperatures: Mid 30s | Wind Chill: Mid - Upper 20s

Tonight: Winds calming, cold

Lows: Low - Mid 20s | Wind: S 5 - 10 mph

Saturday: Sunny and breezy

Highs: Around 50 | Wind: S 10 - 15 mph

Winds and much cooler temperatures will be the main story this weekend through mid next week. Winds will continue for much of the day, calming in the late afternoon. Highs will only stick in the mid to upper 30s today but with a northwest wind at 10 – 20 mph and some gusts up to 30/35 mph it will FEEL like mid to upper 20s for much of the day. Clear skies continue tonight as temperatures fall into the mid-20s. High pressure will slip off the coast tomorrow bringing a return of some “warmer” weather. Highs reach to around 50 Saturday with sunshine. However, we still have a steady breeze moving in from the south. Sunday will be the transition day as we hit the mid-40s early in the day for temperatures readings but drop as we move through the afternoon. Still clocking in some pretty windy conditions, so once again, it will feel much colder on Sunday under a partly sunny sky. Increasing clouds on Monday with highs only in the mid-30s. Could see some light snow showers/flurries floating in from the northwest during the afternoon hours on Monday. Some sunshine returns Tuesday with highs not getting out of the 20s. Overnight lows fall to the lower 20s to upper teens Tuesday night into Wednesday. Wednesday will be very similar to Tuesday's weather, cold but with some sunshine.
