The unseasonably warm weather will continue today through most of the weekend before colder, dry air returns next week. The weekend will be mostly pleasant and dry, but some heavy showers could arrive late Sunday, according to the National Weather Service.
“We are looking at temperatures in the upper 50s today through Sunday,” said Alan Dunham, weather service meteorologist. “On Monday, we could be getting into the lower 60s; the normal high for this time is 52.”
Today will be mostly sunny, with a high near 60. A southwest wind will bring gusts up to 25 miles per hour. Winds will slacken through the day and clouds will thicken through the evening, according to the weather service. Temperatures will fall into the low 40s overnight.
Saturday will be partly sunny, with temperatures reaching the upper 50s. A few showers could come to the southern coast. Clouds will dissipate through the day, and skies will be mostly clear overnight, as temperatures fall into the mid-30s.
Sunday will be mostly cloudy, with a high climbing near 60. Conditions will remain dry through the day, but showers are likely late in the day. Temperatures will fall into the low 50s overnight, according to the weather service.
Showers will continue Monday, mainly between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m., and temperatures will crest above 60. The day will be breezy and cloudy and shouldn’t clear up much overnight, according to the weather service. Showers are possible overnight Monday, and temperatures will fall to around 40.
“We are looking at about half an inch of rainfall on Sunday and Monday, but some places could get a little less, others a little more,” Dunham said. “But then conditions will turn dry again into Tuesday and beyond.”Jasper Craven can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
