Damp start gives way to a sunny, breezy and milder afternoon.

TODAY: AM Showers Taper, Clearing, Breezy & Milder
Highs: 58°-63°
Wind: NW 10-20 mph

OVERNIGHT: Mainly Clear and Cold
Lows: 29°-39°
Wind: N 3-5 mph

TOMORROW: Patchy Cloudy, A Tad Cooler, Less Wind
Highs: 55°-60°
Wind: S 5-10 mph

SUNDAY: Scattered Clouds, Pleasant & Warmer (PM Mountain Shower)
Highs: Mid to Upper 60s

Lingering showers will impact the morning commute but by later this morning, skies will clear and sunshine returns. A breeze will eventually pick-up out of the northwest but not before we experience a nice warm-up to near 60° - ten degrees warmer than yesterday! Clear and cold once again overnight with lows in the low to middle 30s. The weekend starts off with good sunshine, but a few degrees cooler, upper 50s. However, with lighter breezes it will be comfortable. Scattered clouds are likely Sunday with milder temperatures in the mid to upper 60s.

A stronger push of spring-like air moves in to start next week. Highs should finally crest the 70 degree mark, something we haven't seen since that brief late January thaw. Otherwise, expect partly cloudy skies a slight chance of a sprinkle or passing shower, mainly northwest of the city. Have a great weekend!
