A big weekend warm up… After a cold start to the day we are starting our warm up. Highs will reach into the mid 50s today, just a few degrees above normal. Expect clouds this morning but sunshine will return this afternoon. We will see clear skies tonight with lows falling to near 40.

 

Highs will climb to near 70 on Saturday, almost 20 degrees above normal. We will see sunshine through the morning with clouds building in for the afternoon as an area of low pressure slides to our south. Most of the rain from this system will stay to our south but an isolated shower could sneak in Saturday night or Sunday morning. We will start Sunday with clouds but skies will clear through the day. Highs will drop into the mid 60s on Sunday.

 

Expect plenty of sunshine for Presidents Day with highs in the upper 50s. Temperatures will remain above normal for most of next week.
