Patrick Rockey’s Live VIPIR Forecast

Rain moving out, wind sticking around.

After a perfectly nasty Wednesday, we’ll see improving weather on Thursday. The coastal storm that brought us the wet weather will continue to move away, dragging the rain with it. But that low will also continue to intensify. That means we’ll still be dealing with the gusty winds, even as the clouds and rain are long gone. Expect more wind gusts in the 20-30 mph range. The increasing sunshine on Thursday, though, will help warm us into the mid-to-upper 60s.

Winds will be much lower on Friday and we’ll enjoy plenty of sunshine. Expect highs to end the work week into the upper 60s and lower 70s.

And the weekend is looking pretty spectacular, with blue skies and sunshine and virtually no chance for rain. We’ll climb into the lower 70s and Saturday and mid 70s on Sunday.

And the great weather continues into the work week, with highs in the low-to-mid 70s under abundant sunshine.
