A blend of sunshine and clouds this afternoon


It's a chilly start this morning with temperatures in the 20s in many locations. Clouds will be rolling back in through this morning from an upper level disturbance and a sprinkle or two is possible.

Clouds will mix with some sun throughout the day today, but we are looking dry and ‘November-like'. Expect a west wind of 5 to 10 mph through the afternoon and evening, keeping us cool with highs back into the lower 50s. This west-northwest flow will keep us chilly Saturday night and will also keep clouds around into Sunday morning. Clouds will give way to sunny skies Sunday, but temps will be a bit cooler with highs struggling to reach 50. It will also be rather breezy tomorrow with a northwesterly wind between 5 to 15 mph so it will make it feel rather chilly tomorrow afternoon.

High pressure remains in control, extending our dry weather stretch into early next week. We've got a lot of sunshine on tap for Monday, but cooler than normal temperatures remain in place. However, we do have milder temperatures on the way for Election Day with highs climbing to near 60 as high pressure moves southeast. We've got two cold fronts moving through Wednesday and Friday, but with minimal precipitation, if any.
