A look ahead

Thursday should be our warmest and nicest day this week with mostly sunny skies and highs in the low 80s. Thursday night looks partly cloudy with lows in the mid-50s to low 60s. Confidence: Medium-High

Friday starts on the partly sunny side, but edges toward partly to mostly cloudy by the afternoon. High temperatures are still warmer than normal with mid- to upper 70s in the afternoon. Friday night should be cloudy with lows in the upper 50s to low 60s. Confidence: Medium

The weekend forecast is more challenging as a cold front approaches the area on Saturday, bringing in more cloud cover and a chance for showers Saturday and Saturday night. That front could stall a bit on Sunday with more cloud cover and some shower chances again. Look for highs to range in the warm lower to mid-70s on Saturday, but maybe get stuck in the lower to mid-60s on Sunday. Lows Saturday night range through the 50s. Confidence: Low-Medium
