Aside from a few high clouds this afternoon, we are in for plenty of sunshine and bright skies today. A much needed change from a chilly and gray weekend.

High temperatures will reach into the lower 50s with a bit of a breeze out of the northwest at 10 to 15 mph. Temperatures will be gradually increasing throughout the week.

Tuesday will see afternoon highs in the mid to upper 50s with a mix of clouds and sun.

Although temperatures on Wednesday will be very similar to Tuesday, clouds and rain will be moving in and linger into Thursday afternoon.

Once the rain is gone, Thursday will be a fairly mild day with highs into the upper 60s.

We are in for a treat by the weekend. With partly cloudy skies and high temperatures rising into the 70s, it is looking to be an ideal weekend for spending time outside.
