SATURDAY NIGHT

Once the front exits, post-frontal winds out of the NW will be on the rise. Gusts could reach 50 mph along higher elevations. Winds will decrease Sunday morning. Temperatures will fall into the 20s and 30s overnight.

SUNDAY

With the front to our east, we can expect sunshine to increase through the day. Dry, gusty northwest winds will bring the cooler air back into town. Afternoon highs only reach the upper 40s to low 50s which is more seasonable for this time of year.

NEXT WEEK

The familiar mild weather pattern once again takes over next week thanks to a ridge of high pressure building in out of the South. Highs will warm into the 50s and 60s for many areas Monday into next weekend until our next front. In addition, we’ll see plenty of sunshine early in the week. Snow lovers will have to be patient this month.

Highs warm to 10-15 degrees above average.
