Tomorrow (Thursday): Awesome day on the way for tomorrow! High pressure holds court, which allows mostly sunny skies to warm temperatures nicely from their cool start. Highs should reach the mid-to-upper 70s with light winds. Confidence: High
Tomorrow night: Several degrees warmer than tonight but still quite pleasant. Skies are mostly clear as lows dip to the 50s to near 60. Confidence: High
The good times roll right through Friday with another great day. Skies remain mostly sunny and highs rise to the low 80s. Friday night lows are warmer still, in the upper 50s to 60s. Confidence: High
A cold front on the way through means some uncertainty with the weekend forecast. Best chance of showers looks like Saturday afternoon into Saturday night. That chance could linger into Sunday, or the front could move far enough way for clearing skies. Temperatures likely drop from highs in the 80s on Saturday to the 70s on Sunday. Confidence: Low-Medium
