The clear skies continue tonight with temperatures dropping to near 58 degrees by Tuesday morning. Some patchy fog is possible as well.

After a cool morning, we heat up quickly to 87 degrees by Tuesday afternoon! Our average high is around 77 degrees, so that is 10 degrees above average!


Highs remain in the mid-80s on Wednesday and Thursday. Wednesday is all sunshine but Thursday comes with more clouds as a cold front slowly moves into the region.

A cold front moves in Friday afternoon to evening bringing us some rain. Right now, it only looks like a 40% coverage meaning not all of us get rain.

In your First Alert 8-Day Planner, from one extreme to the other, this front brings us below average! We’re looking at highs in the upper 60s to low 70s this weekend into next week, with some upper 40s to low 50s in the mornings.
