It is hard to remember that we’re into November today: Highs near 70 and as warm as the mid-70s are as much as 15 degrees above normal for the date. And it’s not a one-time thing, of course, given we’re early in what could be a lengthy stretch of nice weather. More is on the way through the weekend.

Tomorrow (Saturday): Liked today? We’ve got another coming tomorrow. Sunshine rules as temperatures head toward highs in the low and mid-70s. Winds will be from the south around 5 mph.

Sunday: Coming off lows in the mid-40s to near 50, we’ve got more of the same. Skies will be very sunny, although a few clouds could float by. Highs should again rise near and past 70 and perhaps toward the mid-70s. Winds will be from the southwest around 5 mph.
