Clearing skies, breezy North winds, and warmer temperatures are ahead for your Monday. Valley areas have dipped into the low to mid 50's overnight, and mountain areas are starting out in the low 30's to high 40's. Afternoon high temperatures are projected to climb into the mid to high 70's in the valley, and into the high 50's to mid 60's in the mountains. Winds will be out of the North to around 15mph, but Northern zones of the state could get gusts up to around 25mph.
A significant warming trend will be ahead for the next several days, with valley areas topping out in the mid to high 80's on Wednesday afternoon. Skies will be sunny from Tuesday through Thursday, and gusty North winds will continue across the region. Winds will mostly gust out of the North to around 30mph from Tuesday into Wednesday. Temperatures will begin to drop on Thursday, but will still be in the mid 80's in the valley on Thursday afternoon.
Cloudy skies will return to the region on Friday, and temperatures will cool into the low to mid 70's in the valley. The potential for showers will return on Friday, and last through Sunday. High temperatures will only climb into the high 60's to low 70's this weekend. I hope everyone is ready for the much warmer temperatures ahead for your mid week forecast, and has a marvelous Monday!
