Skies are mostly cloudy early this morning with temperatures in the upper 40s.
It seems like almost every Wednesday lately has been very windy and today will be no exception as wind gusts up to 40 mph are expected, at least today is not my recycling day so I don’t have to chase my plastic and cardboard down the street. Even with mostly sunny skies today it will be noticeably cooler with highs only in the upper 50s and with the wind it will feel that much cooler. Yesterday we only picked up .02″ of rain and that is not a good thing for the area due to the fact conditions will be ripe for brush fires and the National Weather Service has issued a “Fire Weather Watch”.
Windy conditions will continue on Thursday with the chances of brush fires continuing, temperatures will start off chilly in the 30s and rise to the low 60s during the afternoon.
Friday we will have much less wind with increasing cloudiness and a chance of showers in the evening.
At this point the weekend looks dry with seasonably mild temperatures on Saturday and a little cooler on Sunday.
Generally cool and dry weather for early next week.
