A chilly morning across the area as temperatures are in the lower 50s! With full sunshine, temperatures will warm into the lower 80s this afternoon. A northerly breeze is expected through the day.
This same weather pattern looks to persist through the weekend as we’ll continue to see a northerly flow in the upper levels of the atmosphere and the main jet stream stays to our north. Highs will be in the mid-80s both Saturday and Sunday with chilly starts in the upper 50s to lower 60s.
A slow and steady warming trend is expected through next week, however, as highs climb back into the upper 80s for the middle of next week.
