Winds will also begin to increase tonight.
Thursday will be the coolest day of the week with highs in the upper 40s. It will feel a bit cooler with strong NW winds. Winds could gust to near 30 mph at times. We will see plenty of sunshine tomorrow. We will warm back into the 60s this weekend with a blend of sun and clouds.
