Now that the storms are gone, I think you’ll have a beautiful Saturday and Sunday to sit back and relax. Clear blue skies will be with us for the most part as temperatures crack the mid 70s. The winds will be of a concern. There is a wind advisory that’s posted until 8 p.m. on Saturday.

Winds will be gusty at times out of the southwest with sustained winds of 15-20 mph and gust approaching 35-40 mph at times. It will be a nice afternoon to get out and enjoy if you can with plenty of events happening in town and with the warmer temperatures.

Overnight into Sunday morning the winds will calm a little, but still be swirling. We’ll fall to near 47 by the time we wake up on Sunday morning.


Sunday will be another nice afternoon with a few clouds passing by from time to time, but temperatures will be nice and above above in the lower and middle 70s. The quiet weather sticks around for several days with just a stray showers possible on Monday and Tuesday.

Slightly cooler weather will settle in for the middle of next week, but we’ll keep the sunshine around to make it feel comfortable during the afternoons. Our next chance of rain doesn’t arrive until late next week as we head closer to Friday and next Saturday.

Clearing for the rest of the weekend.
