NOWCAST THROUGH LATE MORNING:
Cloudy, breezy with scattered light rain or sprinkles.
6am: Cloudy/Breezy 40°
8am: Cloudy/Breezy 42°
10am: Cloudy/Breezy 48°

WARMER BUT WETTER:
Temperatures more typical of early Spring return today and Friday but so does some rain. A frontal system draws closer to us tonight spreading numerous showers and a few thunderstorms into the region. It will be quite windy with southwest winds gusting over 30mph. The first round of showers and storms heads out Friday morning, but a second round of rain and storms is likely Friday night as another wave of low pressure arrives. A few storms could become strong with the potential for damaging winds late Friday. Highs climb back to near 60 today and into the upper 60s Friday.

DRYING OUT:
It now appears we may have to contend with rain into much of our Saturday before we dry out late Saturday into Sunday. Highs climb from near 60 Saturday into the upper 60s to close out the weekend. We may finally see 70s once again Monday before a weak system delivers a chance for rain and a small cool down into Tuesday.

Windy & Warm, Isolated Showers…High 60, winds SW-22
