Red Flag warning in effect for today from Noon until 8 PM. That just means that with the high winds and the fact that our humidity level is low, an enhanced fire threat for the region. Rapid spread of any uncontrolled fires. Read more in Brian's latest blog.

High pressure moving into the area today but there will still be pretty breezy conditions through the afternoon making it feel like the upper 30s/lower 40s. An increase in cloud cover tomorrow through the day, less breezy and temperatures will still manage to climb into the mid 50s. Rain showers move in late evening to the overnight hours Thursday into Friday with an area of low pressure moving up the coast. A slight breeze on Friday still, highs in the mid 50s with some rain showers that will exit the area in the afternoon/evening. Then high pressure is fully in charge for the weekend bringing much warmer temperatures and highs around 60 on Saturday, nearing 70 on Sunday and Monday with sunshine—(although a few passing clouds/shower could move through Monday).
