Tracking 70s and storms… We will see a nice blend of sun and clouds today with an isolated shower possible. Highs will warm back into the mid 70s this afternoon, 20+ degrees above normal. Winds will pick up a touch this afternoon, into the 5 to 15 mph range. Expect partly cloudy skies tonight with overnight lows in the mid 50s.


We are tracking a cold front for Saturday that will bring us a better chance for rain, storms, and a cool down. Expect partly sunny skies for most of the day with an isolated shower possible. Highs will warm into the mid and even upper 70s. Rain and storm chances will increase for the late afternoon and evening hours. Some storms could be strong to severe with our main threat for gusty winds. Temperatures will drop behind the cold front. Expect highs in the mid 50s on Sunday with plenty of sunshine.
