Weak high pressure will give us a dry and partly sunny day and after highs only in the 30s the last 3 days today the highs will be well up into the 40s and with light winds it will feel more comfortable.

Friday should be a mostly sunny and breezy day with seasonably cool temperatures.
The weekend looks to be mainly dry with near seasonable temperatures continuing.
